Aaron Ramsey has agreed a five-year deal with Juventus and will leave Arsenal at the end of the season.

It has been clear the Welshman would leave Arsenal in the summer and Juventus had been the frontrunners to secure the 28-year-old's signature.

The former Wales captain has been promised a significant role in the club implying that he is likely to be a central figure in a three man midfield preferred by Max Allegri.

However, as it stands the Arsenal star is leaning towards going overseas and the BBC claims Ramsey is ready to undergo a medical and sign a pre-contract as soon as he makes a final decision over his new club.

Having joined from his hometown club Cardiff City for £4.8 million in 2008, Ramsey has scored 62 goals in 354 appearances for Arsenal and won the FA Cup in 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Arsenal haven't got any money to sign players this month, except from on loan, so keeping Ramsey is a must.

And Emery insisted today that he will still count on Ramsey for the rest of the season even if he does finalise a deal with Juventus. For years he's been performing at a top level, ' said Paratici.

'And I was very happy with him in the last match.

Arsenal boss Emery praised the midfielder's attitude on Thursday, saying: "Every day he's here with us, he's working very well".

'His future is for him, his family and his agent.

"I want his behaviour and his focus to be on West Ham on Saturday".

Emery claimed Arsenal can not afford to make any permanent signings this month. The worrying part was that Wenger was not able to convince these players, who left in quest of big trophies to their rivals.

Arsenal have made enquiries for midfielders Denis Suarez, of Barcelona and Ever Banega, of Sevilla, in this window.

"I asked him in the last match at Blackpool if he's OK to help us play, he said yes I want to play".
