Carlton Palmer has urged Crystal Palace to make a move for Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
The former Premier League midfielder has claimed that signing Aaron Ramsey would be a sign of intent from the Eagles.
Palace have been linked with a swoop for the Juventus star this summer and Palmer thinks that bigger sides will be joining southeast Londoners in the race for his signature.
He told This is Futbol:
“It is a sign of intent. I was hearing the rumour that Arsenal were interested in signing him.
“I would think he’s having a fantastic Euros. I would think, with no disrespect to Crystal Palace, I would think there’ll be bigger clubs that will be in for him.”
“He continues to mature as a player and develop. He’s a real leader now in this Arsenal team.
“Playing in a deeper role, as he did under Arsene Wenger – I think that’s the best role for him. If you want Ozil and him in the same team. He’s so important to everything to do. It’s the energy – the box-to-box energy. He’s become an outstanding technician.”
Steve Parish must act swiftly to ensure that Palace are able to beat out any potential competitors for Ramsey’s signature this summer.
Palmer believes that bigger clubs will be coming in for him, which means that Palace need to move quickly to make sure that those sides do not have the chance to swoop in for the Welsh international.
If Parish is aggressive with his pursuit of Ramsey then it could increase Palace’s chances of signing him by reducing the time other clubs have to prepare their offers.
Palace fans would love it if Ramsey arrived at Selhurst Park this summer.
Ramsey is a proven performer at Premier League level and would be able to come in and have an instant impact on the side.
It is almost a risk-free signing from a performance perspective as there is no doubt over the £13m-rated midfielder’s ability to play in the Premier League, with 262 appearances in the English top-flight to his name.
He produced 40 goals and 51 assists for Arsenal in the Premier League and has scored five and assisted six in 46 Serie A matches for Juventus, not to mention his starring role at Euro 2020 so far this month.
The £187k-per-week maestro would, therefore, be a terrific addition to Palace’s squad and inject quality into their midfield.
Ramsey has shown that he can score and assist goals from midfield whilst playing for two top clubs in Arsenal and Juventus, suggesting that he could do the same for Palace.
This is why the fans would love him at the club, as he could help fire them up the table with his performances in the middle of the park.
