Juventus have emerged as one of the leading contenders to sign the Arsenal star on a free transfer in the 2019 summer transfer window to improve their options in the middle of the park.

Looking back, perhaps slinging a whopping new £350,000-a-week deal at Ozil just after contract talks with Ramsey had come to a impasse last January wasn't the smartest move.

Aaron Ramsey could be set to leave Arsenal this month rather than at the end of the season when his contract expires, with Juventus holding a player who Unai Emery is believed to be keen to add to his squad.

"For now, he is an Arsenal player and we are not the only ones [interested]".

When evaluating transfer moves, its' very easy to look at things in the vacuum of the team that is welcoming a new player. Today [Tuesday] he played 15 minutes and he scored. "I want from him this focus when he is playing". Yes, he has been involved on a regular basis this season, but Ramsey has started less than half of Arsenal's Premier League games, and he is definitely not one of Emery's A-listers.

Ramsey joined from hometown club Cardiff as a youngster and has won three FA Cups in his time at the North London club.

However, the Standard reveal Emery wants his board to find the £20m to make sure the deal gets over the line.

"He is a player whose contract is expiring and we will watch his transfer situation carefully - we are monitoring the situation".

With each passing day, Arsenal are realizing what a blunder they have made with Aaron Ramsey.

"We didn't speak about him [Cahill]", Emery told the press. Juventus are the preferred choice of the player and have expressed interest in the deal.
