Arsenal legend Robert Pires reacts to possible Ramsey return

When Aaron Ramsey departed the Emirates after 11 seasons back in July 2019, a sizeable creative gap was left in the heart of the Gunners midfield.

However, current boss Mikel Arteta is reportedly keeping tabs on the Welsh playmaker’s situation, and former Arsenal invincible Robert Pires feels Ramsey can add a different dimension to his current squad.

Pires told TuttoJove: “He is intelligent and knows how to adapt everywhere, Juventus is a very big club and Serie A is improving him even more.

“Aaron would be perfect in Mikel Arteta’s game system, but he belongs to Juve and he has to stay focused on the Old Lady to win trophies.

“It is my belief, I am not a fortune teller.”

The 30-year-old hasn’t exactly set the world alight since he moved to Turin almost two years ago, and could add some much-needed experience to Arteta’s side following the departure of Mesut Ozil in January.

His current deal is not set to expire until July 2023 but with other Premier League clubs also reportedly eyeing up the midfielder, a move back to England could be on the cards.

Ramsey, enjoyed a decorated spell with the Gunners, winning three FA Cup titles and two Community Shields during his time with the side.

He departed for Italy following the expiry of his contract in 2019 and has since gone on to add a Serie A title along with the Italian Super Cup to his personal trophy cabinet.

Despite undoubtedly being hampered by injuries, Ramsey’s technical ability was often up there with the best of them, and his creative spark could be exactly what this current Arsenal side are looking for.
