Bayern Munich and Juventus battle it out for Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey
Juventus and Bayern Munich will go head-to-head for Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey, as per reports.
The Welshman is a free agent next summer and will leave the Emirates after the club’s contract offer was shockingly pulled back.
Ramsey, 27, has attracted interest from several clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter and AC Milan.
Yet, Calciomercato guarantee the Serie A bosses have made their move with a huge £9 million-a-year offer for Ramsey to join them on a free transfer next summer.
The £9m compensation compares to about £175,000-a-week – less than the £200,000 deal he had agreed with Arsenal before the Gunners pulled the plug in September.
The Milan clubs are unable to match those numbers leaving the Turin giants as the reasonable leader for the midfielder’s signature.
Juve supervisor Max Allegri is hoping to bolster his midfield options with the arrival of Ramsey.
Be that as it may, Bayern still extravagant their odds of persuading Ramsey to snub Italy and move to Germany.
Bayern boss Niko Kovac is keen to bolster his midfield to provide competition for Leon Gotetzka, Thiago Alcantara and James Rodriguez.
Juve and Bayern could even sign the Gunners star on a pre-contract agreement when the transfer windows open next month.
Juventus marked Emre Can on a free move from Liverpool in the late spring after his agreement lapsed.
Ramsey has been in North London since leaving Cardiff ten years ago.
His fast approaching way out has bewildered an immense area of the Gunners loyal – Ramsey was voted Player of the season last by Arsenal fans for the second time during his decade at the club.
