Newcastle United have now reportedly made contact with Aaron Ramsey over a potential move.
The Lowdown: Midfielder wanted
The St. James’ Park faithful have recently been linked to the likes of Franck Kessie and James Ward-Prowse, suggesting that they are targeting a new central midfield player following the completed takeover by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium.
Does Ramsey start for Newcastle?
The new owners will have to wait until the January transfer window opens to really stamp their financial authority, but with the calibre of names being linked with a move to the North East already, it promises to be an exciting one for the Toon Army.
The Latest: Ramsey contact
As per Sport Mediaset, the Tyneside club have now made ‘first contacts’ with Ramsey over a potential move from Juventus, and are ‘ready’ to offer him a three-year deal.
The Old Lady seem keen to offload him, as Max Allegri is looking for a more ‘dynamic and physically powerful’ midfielder.
The Verdict: Sign
Even though he may be 30 years of age now, Ramsey is still ‘world-class’ on his day, as claimed by his Wales teammate Joe Allen after a narrow 1-0 loss away at eventual champions Italy in the Euros.
A player who is more than capable of offering goals from midfield, with no fewer than 91 in total in his senior career for both club and country so far, Ramsey also has the added experience of playing in the Premier League before with Arsenal.
He would certainly be a smart signing by the Magpies, providing they can keep him fit, the one major worry with the Wales star being his extensive injury record.
