Everton want to sign an ex-Arsenal star from Juventus

Everton have began talks with Juventus to potentially sign former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the next transfer window.

As per CalcioMercato, the Merseyside club have reached out to Juve, who are reportedly willing to let the Welshman go.

Ramsey signed for the Italian giants on a free transfer in the summer of 2019 after his Arsenal contract expired. He has made 49 Serie A appearances since arriving at the club, scoring five goals.

Could Everton secure this big transfer?

If Ramsey was to make the move to the Toffees, then he would likely come back to the Premier League with a point to prove.

The 30-year-old hasn’t really been able to find his best form at Juventus, and a return to the world’s most competitive league would give him the opportunity to show he is able to mix it with the best.

However, there is a good chance that the midfielder would much rather continue to play his football in Italy.

Ramsey is one of the highest-paid players at the Allianz Stadium, making £400,000 a week. If the Welshman wanted to sign for Everton, that figure could prove to be a stumbling block.

How have the Toffees performed this season?

Everton have had a difficult start to the campaign, having only won five of their 15 games. The main reason for this could be their lack of ability to create chances. The Toffees have scored just 19 goals this season, a number which puts pressure on Rafa Benitez.

A loss against Arsenal on Monday night would potentially have put the final nail in the coffin for the Spanish manager. However, thanks to late goals from Demarai Gray and Richarlison, his side secured a 2-1 victory, sending the London club home with zero points for their efforts.

Brighter times could be on the horizon for Benitez, but he still needs to bolster his squad. Therefore, it seems possible that he could look to make a massive statement and bring Ramsey to Goodison Park in January.
