Arsenal: A look back at 2018

Juventus have confirmed they are interested in signing Aaron Ramsey this summer.

The Arsenal midfielder is available on a free transfer this summer when his current Gunners contract expires.

There has been plenty of interest in him from within the Premier League, especially from Liverpool and Chelsea, as well as from abroad.

As of January 1 clubs in Europe can negotiate with the Welsh international with sporting director Fabio Paratici hinting the Serie A leaders will look to do so.

"Yes, we are interested in Aaron Ramsey," he told Sky Sports in Italy. "He's a great midfielder but at the moment he's an Arsenal player. We will see."

Bayern Munich are also keen and as recently as November believed they had won the race for his signature.

Ramsey signed a five-year deal at Arsenal in March 2014 and has been running it down so that he could leave on a free transfer in summer 2019.

There has been little prospect of him agreeing a new contract at the Emirates and now he will likely be playing his football abroad next season.
