Juventus are interested in signing Aaron Ramsey who is now free to discuss terms with foreign clubs

Serie A giants Juventus have reportedly won the race to sign an Arsenal star, whose contract runs out at the end of the current season.

Juventus have declared their interest in Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey and the Italian champions hope to beat off competition from rival European clubs to sign the midfielder on a free transfer in the summer.

"I have been watching him and see he is concentrated". But I want him in the present with us.

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", he admitted.

The 28-year-old will be out of contract in June, with Arsenal having withdrawn their offer of terms last September.

However, Juventus want to land their man in the January transfer window itself, and feel that using Sami Khedira as a makeweight in negotiations may persuade the London club to part with the midfielder in the coming weeks. That is a question numerous Arsenal are asking, and they made their concerns known by chanting Ramsey's name during the Blackpool game.

At Blackpool, he was measured, solid and reliable, if not spectacular, but that has been the way for Ramsey throughout his time at Arsenal.

Staying at Arsenal will not secure first-team football either, but as Emery rebuilds the team he inherited from Arsene Wenger, he might come to realise that Ramsey is a player worth keeping.

Arsenal would lose a lot of attacking impetus and dynamism; injuries have reduced Khedira's effectiveness and Unai Emery would not want to be lumbered with a fading force.
