Crystal Palace have not made any signings as of yet in the winter transfer window, despite being linked with a number of players, including Aaron Ramsey and now a transfer expert can reveal that a move could potentially be on the cards.
In an interview with FFC, transfer insider Dean Jones, has said that a move for the Wales midfielder is certainly feasible.
Speaking to Jones about the potential option of the South London club signing the 29-year-old midfielder in the transfer window, he revealed:
“So, Aaron Ramsey to Crystal Palace is one that I’ve been told is definitely feasible. It is an option, yeah.”
The central midfielder is reportedly being released by Juventus, where he fell out of favour in the team after joining the Serie A side in 2019, making just 70 appearances and scoring six goals, with only five appearances and one start in the team under the current manager, Massimiliano Allegri.
Conor Gallagher has been an incredible presence in the midfield this season for Crystal Palace, and with the star set to go back to his parent club, Chelsea in the summer, there is a huge question mark hanging over the next steps to replace the youngster in their team when he does inevitably leave.
Thus, fans will be buzzing that a potential replacement who is experienced in midfield and familiar with their manager Patrick Vieira, could make a move to the club, with the Palace manager making it clear about his feelings on Ramsey in his press conference last week, saying:
“We are talking about a top player and of a footballer that can make a difference. If he wants to return to the Premier League, he can be a big hit.”
When you look at Ramsey’s last stint in the Premier League with Arsenal, he clearly knows how to get the best out of his game from his midfield position in the league, with 65 goals and 65 assists, scoring or assisting for the Gunners every 185 minutes he played.
Eagles fans have also given their thoughts on the potential signing of the 29-year-old, with many taking to Twitter to give their verdict, one fan saying:
“People forget just how good Aaron Ramsey was before his move from Arsenal. Under Wenger, he was one of the best midfielders in the league. For a decent price, he is very worth it.”
Vieira will be hoping to make his mark by exceeding expectations in his first season at Selhurst Park, and signing the Wales international could be a fantastic way to give him that push to secure that top-half finish.
It would add experience and proven ability to offer a consistent attacking output in the Premier League, so it will be interesting to see if the Eagles can make it happen this January. If they do, fans will understandably be elated, especially if they seal a long-term replacement for Gallagher.
