There is no doubting the quality of Aaron Ramsey; he possesses both the technical ability to control and distribute in the centre of the park – having been mentored by one of the pioneers of the modern game, Arsene Wenger, and an attacking prowess that is akin to some of the most gifted forwards.
However, having turned out 340 appearances at the top level for Arsenal, it seems he is finally looking to take his career outside of North London.
According to The Sun, Everton have stormed into the lead in the race for Aaron Ramsey’s signature, having reportedly offered a £15million signing on fee and £150,000 a week wages.
With this in mind, we take a look at which players may join Aaron Ramsey in a new-look Everton squad in 2019…
An interesting one: The Mail have reported that Everton are lining up a shock move for ex-Arsenal and Manchester City player Samir Nasri, who is currently one month away from returning from a drug ban.
Indeed, it’s been a long time since Nasri has shown anything close to the quality he put on display at his past clubs; however, as a replacement for current starters, Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, the move makes sense. At 31, the Frenchman may have lost his pace in recent years, but his ability on the ball is second to none. Providing he makes a smooth transition back into training at the top level, having been on a brief hiatus, we expect this move to be mutually beneficial for both player and club.
This move probably won’t delight the Everton fans who are currently celebrating the reported (as per Turkish outlet Fanatik) end to Oumar Niasse’s disastrous ‘career’ at the club. However, according to The Mirror, this move is very much a thing.
With opportunities at Liverpool limited further by Daniel Sturridge’s surprise return to the game, and Firmino being a class above, there really isn’t much of a career left for Origi in a red shirt.
Instead, he may need to opt for a move to the blue side of the Merseyside, where he will undoubtedly occupy Niasse’s place on the bench, but with a marginally better prospect for game time.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
