It is understood his boyhood dream was to play for Barcelona but despite preliminary talks that option will not be pursued.

Aaron Ramsey is edging closer and closer to a move away from Arsenal.

'At the moment he's an Arsenal player, certainly we aren't the only ones following him'.

Juventus may be leading the race to sign Aaron Ramsey, but the deal is far from done and there are still several European giants who are looking to hijack the move.

He will complete the campaign with Arsenal prior to leaving as a free agent in the summer.

He is in line to earn up to £140,00 a week with the Italian club, which works out at £7.2 million a season, although Cristiano Ronaldo is Juventus' highest-paid player.

Earlier this season, the Gunners announced that the club would not be offering the Welshman a new deal so an exit has always looked likely.

However, according to Sky in Italy, terms have now been agreed between the two parties and Juventus will finalise the transfer during the middle of next week.

Jose Mourinho Comments On Real Madrid Rumours
Jose Mourinho has spoken on what the future holds for him following his recent sacking from Manchester United and refused to rule out a return to Inter.

Ultimately Arsenal were not prepared to meet his salary demands, with some among the hierarchy regretting the new deal given to Mesut Ozil a year ago, worth £350,000 per week, and determined to avoid a repeat.

However, Emery will not be particularly sad to see Ramsey go, with BBC Sport reporting that the Spaniard had reservations over his role in the squad and suitability to his football.

Emery does not usually deploy a number eight, meaning the Welshman has mainly been used in a strict deeper role without license to roam or in the number 10 position with his back to goal.

Juventus boss Max Allegri and club director Fabio Paratici are huge fans of the Welsh midfielder and have emerged as the favourites to sign him in recent weeks.

"My idea and focus, I say to him every day, is with us", said Emery.

'We need his performances for us and the last matches I am very happy with him'.

"I asked him in the last match at Blackpool if he's ok to help us play, he said yes I want to play".
