AARON RAMSEY’S MOVE to Juventus has been officially confirmed by the Serie A champions, with the midfielder set to join the Old Lady next season.

The Wales international has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with the Bianconeri, moving from Arsenal on 1 July after completing his eleventh season at the Emirates.

In that time the 28-year-old won three FA Cups under Arsene Wenger, while also winning two Community Shields.

Ramsey’s contract will tie him to Massimiliano Allegri’s side until 2023, with Sky Sports reporting that he could be paid up to £325,000 per week.

“Everyone at Arsenal Football Club wishes Aaron Ramsey a happy and successful future,” the club said in a statement released on Monday evening.

“Aaron’s made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008.

“He has always been a consummate professional and will always have a special place in the hearts and memories of Arsenal fans around the world.

“We look forward to Aaron helping the team to a strong end to this season before he joins Juventus in the summer.”

He joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008, scoring 61 goals in 259 appearances. On Monday the player issued a personal statement thanking Gunners fans for their support during his 11-year stay with the club.

“I wanted to issue a personal statement for all the Arsenal fans who have been extremely loyal and supportive,” Ramsey wrote. “You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I have encountered during my time at the club.

“It is with a heavy heart that I leave after 11 incredible years in north London. Thank you. I will continue to give the team 100 per cent and hope to finish the season strongly, before heading on to my next chapter in Turin.”
