Done Deal? - Arsenal Midfielder Aaron Ramsey Has Chosen His Next Club

Ramsey made it clear that he wouldn't be staying at Arsenal after he stalled on a new contract offer from the Gunners leaving him free to negotiate with an overseas club and sign a pre-contract agreement.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has chosen Juventus as his preferred suitor with his current Emirates Stadium deal running out, according to Sport Mediaset, via Italian outlet Calcio Mercato.

But Juventus though ave promptly rejected the offer and are more than happy to wait until the end of the season in order to get Aaron Ramsey.

"I don't know what is the situation", Emery said.

Sources have told ESPN FC that the decision last September to withdraw the contract offer, which had been on the table for eight months, was down to Emery believing that Ramsey did not, and could not, fit the profile of his ideal midfielder.

"I want his focus every day with us on training and thinking for the next match, which is against Blackpool", Emery said.

Bournemouth agrees 18-month loan deal with Rangers for Jermaine Defoe
Defoe will join up with Rangers , who are second in the Scottish Premiership , on their warm-weather training camp in Tenerife. Davis made 152 appearances for Rangers between 2008 and 2012, scoring 18 goals before leaving for the English Premier League .

They also claim that Sami Khedira could move in the opposite direction.

Previous year it seemed likely that Ramsey would join Bayern Munich and in the past he's been linked with Roma.

He has one goal and six assists in 16 Premier League appearances this campaign, however, that is not good enough for the new boss Unai Emery.

A further breakdown of his expected income at Turin shows Ramsey will pocket a €500k bonus if he play 50% of games per season, a €1m bonuses if he play 70% and will become the club's second highest earner behind Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.

But now Arsenal believe they can do without him, and unless the supporters are able to force Emery to change his mind, Ramsey will be off in the summer. "For now, he is an Arsenal player".
