Lee Ryder has shared what sources from Newcastle United have now said about their reported move for Aaron Ramsey in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Ramsey eyed
As per Goal, the St. James’ Park faithful have asked about the possibility of signing Ramsey, who is of no shortage of interest.
Does Ramsey start for Newcastle?
The Tyneside club remain the only team in the Premier League not to have signed a single player so far (Sky Sports), and so with the new 2021/22 season fast approaching, they certainly need to be moving quicker in the market.
The Latest: Ramsey update
Writing in his latest piece for The Chronicle, Ryder has shared that sources at the Magpies have played down recent reports linking them with a move for Ramsey.
There has apparently not been an enquiry from Steve Bruce’s team over the Juventus ace, although he is being offered to clubs in the top flight by his representatives, with both Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves being credited with interest.
The Verdict: Avoid
While Ramsey has been a great player and a classy servant to Premier League football down the years, with his Wales teammate Joe Allen even going as far as to claim that he was ‘world-class’ during their Euro 2020 campaign, at 30 years of age he is unlikely to get any better.
Signing a whopping £400,000-a-week deal to join the Old Lady when he left Arsenal back in 2019, his wages would also be very problematic for the Magpies, and so they should be looking to pursue other targets who are younger, less injury prone and require less investment.
