Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed Aaron Ramsey will leave the club this month, with the Welshman attracting plenty of interest from the Premier League.

The 31-year-old has featured just five times for Juventus this season across all competitions, appearing on only three occasions in Serie A, with his last coming back in September against Sampdoria.

Injuries have once again curtailed his progress in Turin, and while Allegri did confirm the midfielder has since returned to training, he went on to add that the former Arsenal man is not part of his long-term vision.

Ramsey, who joined the Old Lady on a free transfer from Arsenal in 2019, reportedly earns around £325,000 a week and has one year left on his current contract. Interest from his former club, Everton and Newcastle have all gained traction this month, though nothing concrete has materialised as of yet.

“Ramsey, he returned today after we had given him a few days off to work, to train separately, in England. In any case, he’s an outgoing player,” Allegri told a press conference.

Since joining the Italian giants three years ago Ramsey has featured 70 times, scoring six goals and registering six assists, though he started just 11 Serie A games in his debut campaign and only 13 last season, with injuries once again hampering his career.

There has been considerable interest from Newcastle already this month, with the club looking to bring in some big names this window following their Saudi-led takeover, as Eddie Howe looks to steer the club away from the relegation zone.

Arsenal have also been a name associated with their former star. Ex-Gunner Theo Walcott recently revealed that Ramsey would be open to a return to north London, though whether Mikel Arteta would want to destabilise his wage structure in order to sign him remains to be seen.

“It would be lovely for him to come back,” Walcott said in November. “I feel like he would want to. Some part of me in my head is thinking he wants to come back to Arsenal.”

Everton represent another Premier League option for Ramsey. Rafa Benitez’s men are currently struggling in the Premier League owing to injuries and a lack of investment in the summer, spending under £2m on new signings. They’ve already strengthened with Vitaliy Mykolenko and Nathan Patterson, so appear to be looking to transform their season with a wave of fresh recruits.
