Aaron Ramsey Rejects January Transfer to Premier League Burnley
Sky Sports (Italy) have reported this evening that Juventus and Wales International midfielder Aaron Ramsey has turned down an offer to join the Clarets in the January transfer window. The midfielder has fallen out of favour with head coach Massimiliano Allegri, who returned to “The Old Lady” last May.
The Welshman, an international team-mate of Clarets summer signings Connor Roberts and Wayne Hennessey, made the move to Italy in the summer of July 2019. He had made 369 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions, scoring 64 times and was a three-time FA Cup winner with the Gunners.
Ramsey is only one game short of 50 appearances in Serie A, but there are serious doubts over whether he’ll get the opportunity to reach that milestone. The Caerphilly-born middle man, who spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City has made just one league start this season.
Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, speaking to the Transfer Show said, “I can confirm that one Juventus player, Aaron Ramsay, can probably come back to the Premier League. He had an official proposal from Burnley but he said ‘no’ he doesn’t want to play for Burnley. He wants to play for a more challenging team, an ambitious team in the Premier League.
Newcastle United asked for him before Christmas so we’ll see in January if some Premier League teams want Ramsay. He would like to come back because now at Juventus, he’s in a difficult situation.”
