Everton given green light to sign Aaron Ramsey

Everton are closing in on their second signing of the summer with Ruben Vinagre set to make the move to Merseyside, and now a reliable source has given an update on a long-term target that has given the club the green light to seal a deal.

What’s the latest?

Italian journalist and transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Juventus have released Aaron Ramsey.

Romano tweeted:

“Official. Juventus and Aaron Ramsey have just parted ways by terminating the contract, agreement has been signed today.

“Ramsey will now be available as free agent.”

Everton have been heavily linked with a move for Ramsey since the January transfer window, according to the Mirror (via The Top Flight).

He can be Cahill 2.0

It is no secret that Everton are in desperate need of reinforcements this summer following a difficult relegation battle at the bottom of the table over last season, and the former Arsenal star could be the key to unlocking the experience and talent needed at Goodison Park.

Ramsey is best known for his football at Arsenal where the Welshman scored 65 goals and delivered 65 assists over 371 appearances, with a goal contribution every 185 minutes from his attacking midfield role, however, since leaving the Emirates the grass has not been greener on the other side.

The 31-year-old star joined Juventus in February 2019, and it hasn’t been plain sailing with his game-time dwindling and constant injury issues plaguing the midfielder’s move to the Serie A, tallying up just 69 appearances with six goals and six assists.

Firstly, where did Everton finish in the Premier League?

Ramsey who was hailed an “all-round player” by Arsene Wenger made just three appearances in the first half of last season, before making the move to the Scottish Premiership where he scored two goals in 13 appearances, but again his entire season was plagued with muscular problems.

Frank Lampard is a huge fan of the Wales international, lavishing praise on Ramsey, having hailed him as “class” in an interview back in 2018.

“He is class when at his best and I do feel there is another level for him to strive for. He showed great quality at the 2016 European Championships.”

If Ramsey could stay fit there is no doubt that he wouldn’t be able to make a positive impact in midfield for the Toffees and could even be their very own Tim Cahill 2.0 – given his ability to add goals and assists from midfield – if he can get a good run of games and work with Lampard to get the very best from his talent.

Should Everton sign Aaron Ramsey?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With that being said, the signing of Ramsey would a great piece of business for Everton as he is available for a free transfer and could save Farhad Moshiri millions amid financial troubles, but it would be a risk as the player’s injury problems could be an issue.
