An update has emerged on Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey, regarding Newcastle’s interest in him.
According to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, Newcastle have offered a three-year contract to the central midfielder ahead of the January transfer window.
The Magpies are keen on signing the ex-Arsenal man from the Italian giants and have now made their interest formal with a contract offer on the table.
Fans must be buzzing with this news as it shows that PIF are serious about improving the squad immediately and are ready to invest in the starting XI in the January transfer window.
Instead of slogging out the rest of the campaign with the current squad in an attempt to survive relegation before splurging in the summer, they are seemingly keen to make an instant impact on Tyneside.
PIF are making moves well in advance of January to make sure that they have a solid plan in place, which Newcastle fans will surely be delighted with. They appear to have a clear plan of action and are now putting it into effect with this offer to Ramsey.
Magpies fans will be excited to see Ramsey arrive at St. James’ Park as he is a proven Premier League performer who has played at the very top level. He has featured in over 300 games for Arsenal and produced 130 combined goals and assists for the Gunners in all competitions during his time in England.
Arsenal legend Martin Keown once provided the Wales international with a review that should make the Toon really stand to attention. He said:
“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 they do. It’s the energy – the box-to-box energy. He’s become an outstanding technician.”
He has also provided 12 goals and assists in 69 appearances for Juventus, with 14 of those coming in the Champions League for the Italian giants. This shows that he knows how to perform on the biggest stage, along with having Premier League experience, and that means that he could come in and give a massive lift to the Newcastle squad in January.
Just imagine the influence a player like him – a goalscoring midfielder – could have on Joe Willock too. The positives are endless if they are genuinely interested in securing his services.
He is a proven performer in England and Magpies fans will know what to expect from him, having seen him play against their side for Arsenal in previous years. This is why they will be buzzing to read that PIF are already making moves to sign him on a permanent deal from Juventus.
