EPL: Emery sends strong message to Aaron Ramsey over joining Juventus

Juventus and Bayern Munich are both keen to sign Ramsey as a free agent, with the two clubs allowed to open talks with the Welshman this month in an effort to negotiate a precontract agreement.

Arsenal's head coach Unai Emery had named Aaron Ramsey as one of the five captains this season and initially, the club was expected to renew Wales midfielders contract.

"I don't know what is the situation", Emery said.

The 28-year-old is out of contract in June and from January 1, the Welsh worldwide has been able to negotiate with clubs and can sign a pre-contract. I am looking at him and he's very concentrated with us now.

"Mesut signed a new contract last January because he saw his future at Arsenal, and nothing has changed in his mind".

And when asked directly about Chelsea's Gary Cahill, he replied simply: "We didn't speak about him".

Given Ramsey's experience of playing in the Champions League and the Premier League, it's little surprise that some top European clubs have been linked with a swoop to sign the 27-year-old. "He's a great midfielder but at the moment he's an Arsenal player".

At Blackpool, he was measured, solid and reliable, if not spectacular, but that has been the way for Ramsey throughout his time at Arsenal.

"At left or right wing, perhaps one player can help us in this position".

Juventus are confident of finalising a deal to sign Aaron Ramsey this summer and have offered him a €7 million (£6.3m/$8m) per year contract, Goal understands.

And Arsenal fans believe this means he is on his way to north London.

Staying at Arsenal will not secure first-team football either, but as Emery rebuilds the team he inherited from Arsene Wenger, he might come to realise that Ramsey is a player worth keeping.
