Fabrizio Romano gives update on reported Wolves target Aaron Ramsey

Journalist Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on reported Wolves target Aaron Ramsey, amid speculation linking him with a move to Molineux.

The Wales international is seemingly set to move on from Juventus.

Romano has said on Twitter: “Juventus are still planning to find a solution to sell Aaron Ramsey in January. He’s out of the plans and looking for a potential new challenge.

It has been a tough start for Ramsey in 2021/22 so far. He has only made five appearances for the club, and struggled a little with injury.

It has not been a fruitful move for the midfielder since his arrival in 2019.

He’s only scored six goals and made six assists in 70 games.

The player is under contract until 2023, but it seems Ramsey is very unlikely to stay until then.

Last month Corriere dello Sport claimed in their print edition (8/10, pg. 19) that Wolves were actually planning a bid for Ramsey.

That came after Wolves had apparently wanted to sign him in the summer.

It remains to be seen if the club will act on their interest, amid Romano’s claim that the player wants a new challenge.

Wolves target Ramsey to Molineux is probably a long shot

It is not clear how much Juventus would want for Ramsey. But given they got him on a free it’s likely they wouldn’t demand too much, as they’d be making a profit in any case.

Ramsey was a fantastic player for Arsenal in the Premier League.

But one wonders if those days are behind him now.

He’s still only 30, but he’s had a quite a few injury problems since his move to Turin.

And then there is, of course, the issue of his wages.

He supposedly earns £400,000-a-week, which is four times the amount Joao Moutinho – Wolves’ highest earner – takes home.

Ramsey may be a target for Wolves and he may want a new challenge, but such a move is very difficult to see happening. Surely Renato Sanches should be the priority instead.
