A journalist has revealed the latest on Newcastle United’s pursuit of Aaron Ramsey in the January transfer window.
The Lowdown: Ramsey pursuit
The possibility of the Wales international moving to St James’ Park this month is certainly not going away any time soon.
Does Ramsey start for Newcastle?
Tuttosport reported last month (via Sport Witness) that the Magpies are the ‘most likely’ to sign the Juventus ace, while the same news outlet claimed last week that the Bianconeri are ‘ready to agree’ a loan deal with the Tyneside club, with the situation being a ‘work in progress’.
The Latest: Ramsey update
As per journalist Jonathan Shrager, there are currently no talks between the Magpies and Ramsey’s representatives with regards to a potential transfer this month, although it has not been ruled out.
He tweeted: “I am told that there are currently no conversations between Newcastle United and Aaron Ramsey’s representatives regarding a possible January transfer.”
The Verdict: Get it done
We are only two days into the transfer window, but Newcastle need to bring in players fast in order to give them the best possible chance of staying up.
The 31-year-old would also thrive under Eddie Howe’s system – Ian Rush claimed that the Magpies manager ‘would love’ Ramsey in his side and would ‘fit his style down to a tee’ (The Chronicle).
He is a transfer target who could potentially go under the radar as a smart piece of business from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium, should they be able to get a deal over the line.
