Aaron Ramsey will join Juventus in a deal reportedly worth £36million bringing to an end his 11-year spell with Arsenal.
The former Cardiff City midfielder had been in talks with several of Europe’s top clubs including Paris St-Germain and Bayern Munich.
But, according to reports in Italy, Ramsey has agreed to join the Serie A giants at the end of this season in a five-year deal and will become a team-mate of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Wales international Ramsey is available on a free transfer when his contract ends in June and had been free to talks to clubs as a free agent.
The 28-year-old will reputedly earn £140,000 a week at Juventus, who have won the league title for the past seven seasons and are nine points clear this campaign.
It had become clear that Ramsey would be leaving the Gunners, the club he joined in a near £5million deal from boyhood club Cardiff in 2008 after he had played in the Bluebirds’ FA Cup Final defeat to Portsmouth.
The Caerphilly-born player has since won three FA Cups with his 52 goals for Arsenal including the winner in the 2014 and 2017 finals.
