Barry Fry believes Aaron Ramsey would be a superb, if expensive, signing for West Ham United this summer.
The Juventus midfielder has been heavily linked with a potential departure from the club this summer amid links with the Premier League.
The Hammers have again been touted as potential suitors, along with Crystal Palace and, potentially, former club Arsenal.
Should West Ham sign Ramsey?
Ramsey, of course, made his name in the Premier League, making 371 appearances in total for the Gunners, and scoring 65 goals, while also registering 65 assists.
However, he is reported to earn £400,000-per-week in Turin following his free transfer to Serie A, though he has made just 46 appearances for Juve.
Fry does not believe that the Hammers will give him anything close to those wages at the London Stadium but he feels that if they can make a deal happen, it would be a superb signing for them.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “They could possibly make it happen but I’m sure they wouldn’t pay him 400 grand a week.
“Ramsey’s been outstanding for Wales, he makes fantastic runs from midfield, he’s a perfect player to fit into that West Ham style of play and he would be a great asset and a great signing but they won’t go to that much, there’s no doubt in my mind.”
