Everton: Aaron Ramsey offered to Toffees -Everton Transfer Rumours

According to reports by Corriere Torino (via Sport Witness), Everton are in the picture to sign Juventus star Aaron Ramsey and they even claim that the Italian side are presenting him on a plate to the Toffees.

The Lowdown: Ramsey’s failed move to Italy

Ramsey had an illustrious career at Arsenal, where he quickly became a fan favourite. The Wales international made 371 appearances for the club, in which he scored 65 goals and produced 65 assists.

Ramsey’s transfer to Turin did not work the way the Welshman would have wanted though, having made just 70 appearances for the Italian outfit, totalling just 98 minutes of playing time in the league this season.

The midfielder’s relationship with Juventus has begun to crumble. In an interview with The Guardian, he took a swipe at the Italian side, blaming his recent injuries on the club. He said that he’s still ‘feeling good, when given the opportunity and managed correctly’.

The Latest: Juventus offer Ramsey on a plate

As per reports in Turin (via Sport Witness), Everton remain in the picture to sign Ramsey. The Toffees join Newcastle United in pursuit of the Welshman’s signature, however it is being said that his wages have become a big problem.

The midfielder’s contract runs until the summer of 2025, so Juventus will need to find a suitor to match his enormous wages for the remaining three and a half years – adding up to a colossal £42m.

It is said that Juventus will therefore do anything to offload the player, and that they are even offering him on a plate to Everton on a free transfer.

The Verdict: Compromise

It is understandable that Ramsey’s wages are proving to be a stumbling block in Everton’s pursuit of the player – £42m is quite frankly a ridiculous sum, and one the club would surely not pay if that were the cost of the initial transfer for example.

However, Ramsey has never been short of enormous praise, so the talent is certainly there if they can find a compromise – former manager Arsene Wenger once even compared him to Premier League legend Frank Lampard. More recently during EURO 2020, Wales teammate Joe Allen hailed the midfielder as ‘world-class’.

Averaging 1.8 shots, 1 key pass and 0.8 dribbles per game for Wales in the summer tournament, the 30 year-old proved he still has what it takes at the top level, and if the Blues can find a reasonable deal with his representatives we feel this would be a fantastic move. That, of course, is a big IF.
