Former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been linked with a move away from Juventus this summer, with reports in Italy claiming he could return to the Emirates.

According to Calcio Mercato, Juventus and Arsenal have been in talks about a potential swap deal involving Ramsey and Hector Bellerin.

The Welsh international has been at Juventus since leaving the Gunners in 2019 when his contract expired, signing a bumper four-year deal with the Serie A giants.

However, Ramsey’s time in Italy has been marred by various injury problems, which have limited him to just 24 league starts over the past two seasons.

With Juventus struggling financially, several players are expected to be offloaded this summer and Ramsey is said to be one of them.

Despite suggestions that he could return to Arsenal, football.london are reporting that Ramsey will not be rejoining the Gunners this summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports earlier this month, Ramsey admitted that his time at Juventus had been “frustrating” so far.

“It’s obviously been a very frustrating period for me over the last couple of years,” he said.

“I’ve picked up a few small niggly injuries which have been frustrating and I’ve not been able to get any consistency going.

“It’s been frustrating when you arrive at a new club and want to hit the ground running and show everybody what you’re capable of doing consistently.

“It’s always going to be difficult when you have these sort of little injuries that set you back a couple of weeks and then your rhythm is interrupted.

“And then you chuck in Covid as well which hasn’t helped.”

When asked if he will remain at Juventus next season, Ramsey simply replied: “Yeah, I’m a Juventus player.”

Former Wales striker John Hartson recently said Ramsey and international team-mate Gareth Bale will not be short of options this summer.

Speaking to WalesOnline, Hartson said: “Aaron Ramsey’s been in and out. Juventus haven’t had a great season.

“But hopefully we can get them in a good place and they can let their agents organise that and take their minds off things while they’re with Wales for the best part of a month.

“Gareth will have lots of options on the table, and I’m sure Aaron Ramsey will as well. They’ve still got an awful lot to offer, both players.”

Ramsey, however, is focused on the upcoming Euros and he will be hoping to help Wales enjoy another successful tournament, having played a key part in their run to semi-finals in 2016.

“I’ve definitely worked hard over the last few months to get my body back into a good place,” Ramsey said ahead of the tournament.

“I’m a proud Welshman who wants to play for Wales and help my team as much as I can.

“For me to have missed a few games over the last few years has been very frustrating and difficult for me.

“Hopefully now that’s behind me and I can look forward to all these games in the European Championships.”
