FA Cup: Emery confirms five Arsenal players to miss Blackpool clash

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey

Juventus confirm Aaron Ramsey interest as sporting director labels Arsenal midfielder a 'great player'

Looks like Aaron Ramsey to Juventus is a done deal.

Ramsey revealed during the closing months of 2018 that he would be leaving the Emirates Stadium after the Gunners opted not to renew the playmaker's deal.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has remained tight lipped with regard to the media reports linking midfielder Aaron Ramsey with a move away from the club with both Inter and Juventus among those linked.

Since January 1, the Wales global was free to negotiate with foreign clubs and sign a pre-contract.

The 28-year-old was attracted to Italy by the prospect of a five-year contract worth almost £6million a season (£5.87m) a season in a bid to see off interest from the likes of Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.

The January transfer window represents the final chance for Arsenal to receive a transfer fee for Ramsey but the club reportedly want to keep the midfielder for the remainder of the campaign.

Two FA Cup-winning goals, against Hull and Chelsea respectively, helped end a barren spell for the Gunners and it is those happy memories which many supporters are holding onto as his contract runs down over the next few months.

He wants to play for Arsenal - that's as far as I understand it - now it's up to Emery to play his hand.

"Paratici told reporters: "[Ramsey] is a great player, we really like him and he plays for a great team.

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

This is what made the League Cup so exciting, being able to see all these youth players stretching their legs and getting their feet underneath them with the senior team.
