IT LOOKS LIKE Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is heading to Juventus.

The Wales international has reportedly agreed a five-year deal with the Italian giants worth £36 million (€39,824,230) and will link up with his new club at the end of the season. 

Ramsey’s current contract at the Emirates is due to expire then so he’ll leave on a free transfer after 10 years at Arsenal.

It’s understood that the 28-year-old will have a medical with the Italian champions on Sunday. When the deal is done he will earn around £140,000 (€154,857) per week, making him the second-highest earner at the Serie A outfit behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

He’ll follow in the footsteps of fellow countrymen John Charles and Ian Rush in Turin.

Since joining from Cardiff City, Ramsey has racked up over 350 appearances for the Gunners over the last decade, scoring 60 goals in the process and winning three FA Cup titles. He scored the winners in both the 2014 and 2017 finals against Hull and Chelsea respectively.

Under Unai Emery, Ramsey has played a key role in the team and featured 18 times in the first half of the 2018-19 campaign.

He also helped Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

Juventus are nine points clear at the top of the Italian top flight as they chase an eighth successive title.
