Aaron Ramsey is in for a shock move.
Reigning Scottish champions Rangers are closing in on the signing of Welsh international Aaron Ramsey from Juventus, despite reported Premier League interest.
Ramsey’s future at Juventus has been the subject of much scrutiny in recent times, with Massimiliano Allegri stressing that the ex-Arsenal star has no future at the club.
But despite interest from Premier League clubs, including Aston Villa and Burnley, the Welsh international appears set for a big move to Ibrox.

While Ramsey has enjoyed varying degrees of success at Juventus, he has, however, struggled to kick on with the Old Lady in recent times.
Between injury and Covid-19, Ramsey has not played a league game for Juve since September and is unlikely to stay at the club much longer.
Earlier this month, Allegri confirmed that Ramsey was an ‘outgoing player’, while also confirming that Alvaro Morata was set to stay at the club.

“Ramsey, he returned today after we had given him a few days off to work, to train separately, in England,” said Allegri on January 5th. “In any case, he’s an outgoing player.”
“Instead Alvaro Morata will not leave, he is a performance footballer. The problem with him is that he is given a wrong label. He is very important. I talked to him and I told him not to move from here. Case closed.”
While Rangers look set to land a huge signing, there are still questions hanging around the future of Ireland international Jamie McGrath.
Despite reports emerging in Scotland that McGrath was happy to stay at St Mirren, their manager, Jim Goodwin has confirmed that it is 50/50 whether or not he will stay, or not.

Speaking today, Goodwin explained: “It’s 50/50 at the minute,” he said.
“If Jamie is still here after the window I’ll be in a very good position; because I’ll have another quality player.”
