Arsenal 'done deal' as Ramsey completes Juventus medical but Gunners make

That’s according to La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira.

Arsenal star Ramsey is out of contract in the summer and the Gunners have decided not to hand him a new deal.

The Welshman has attracted interest form several clubs but it appears Juventus have now won the race to his signature,

Ramsey will be allowed to join the Serie A champions on a free transfer in the summer despite Juve’s sporting director Fabio Paratici keen to secure him this month.

However, Schira claims the Gunners are only willing to let him go in January if they secure a fee of around £18m or receive Medhi Benatia in return.

“Done deal! Aaron #Ramsey has done the first part of medicial visits with #Juventus.”, Schira tweeted.

“Paratici has tried to take him in this january, but #Arsenal wants for him €18-20M or #Benatia.

“From next summer Ramsey will be the #Juve’s player and will sign 5-years contract. #transfers #AFC”.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has Juventus centre-back Benatia at the forefront of his plans after defender Rob Holding was ruled out for the remainder of the season through injury.

Benatia is under contract until 2020, but Juve are unlikely to consider selling this month.

The Morocco international has made just five Serie A appearances this term and knows he could see his game time increase if he takes up the offer of a move to north London.

Meanwhile, Emery admitted the club were working on new signings following their disappointing 1-0 defeat to West Ham on Saturday..

Emery added: “We have the players to continue our way, the club is working (on new signings), but I am happy with the players and we need everybody also to continue after this bad result.”
