Juventus to finalise deal for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey?

Arsenal manager Emery could lose Ramsey at the end of the season, with Juventus reportedly nearing a deal that will take him to Turin at the end of the campaign.

An offer from Paris St-Germain is thought to carry great appeal, while there is also interest from Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.

However, Ramsey's destination could have been very different, with BBC Sport reporting that Bale encouraged his Wales teammate to link up with him at the Bernabeu.

The Guardian have claimed that Ramsey will earn upwards of £140,000 per week, making him the club's second-highest paid player behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

He will sign his pre-contract with Juve, but see out the season in London.

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. Ramsey made his competitive debut for Arsenal in the Champions League third qualifying round against FC Twente on 13 August 2008 and his league debut a month later against Blackburn Rovers on 13 September 2008, marking it with an assist to Emmanuel Adebayor for Arsenal's fourth.

But Emery insists the player is willing to give his all.

But it became clear that Ramsey's desire to play as a number eight, running on to the ball from an advanced central midfield position, clashed with Emery's vision. He asked in Blackpool to play, he said: "Coach, I want to play". "I want his behaviour and his focus to be on West Ham on Saturday".
