Former Wolves target Aaron Ramsey is now a free agent

Aaron Ramsey, who was linked with Wolves in the January transfer window, is now a free agent.

The Wales international has terminated his contract with Juventus a year before it was due to expire.

The 31-year-old spent the second-half of last season on loan at Rangers, where he made 13 appearances.

Ramsey joined Juventus in the summer of 2019 after running down his contract with Arsenal.

Joining the Italian giants on a free transfer meant he was able to command a huge salary, with Juve reportedly paying him £400,000-a-week.

The move ultimately did not work out though, with competition for places in midfield fierce.

In the end, Ramsey made 69 appearances for the club, scoring six goals and making six assists.

Wolves were actually linked with a move for Ramsey during the 2021/22 January transfer window. Various reports had claimed that he was offered to Wanderers (via Birmingham Mail).

There were even claims that Wolves were the frontrunners at one point.

Nothing materialised in the end, with Wolves not making any significant signings and Ramsey heading to Ibrox.

With Ramsey now unattached, one wonders if Wolves will considering make a swoop to bolster their pool of midfield options.

Wolves swooping for Ramsey would be a surprise, but never say never

There remains a need for Wolves to sign a box-to-box midfield player.

Ramsey still classes as that kind of player, but he’s obviously had a number of injury problems in recent years.

Wolves would not be signing the Arsenal version of Ramsey, so it would be a big risk.

But perhaps if the salary demands were reasonable, and Ramsey was willing to sign a pay-as-you-play deal, the club should consider signing him.

Ultimately he’s a player with a lot of Premier League experience and someone who could be great for the dressing room.
