Juventus outcast Aaron Ramsey can solve Everton midfield issues.
New Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has deemed Aaron Ramsey surplus to requirements. With the former Arsenal man not wanted at Allianz Stadium, Everton must consider signing him or acquiring him on loan to solve the midfield issues.
The last few days have been a rollercoaster for a Juventus fan. From failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League quarter finals to seeing Maurizio Sarri being sacked to celebrating the appointment of Andrea Pirlo as manager. With Pirlo taking over the reins in Turin, you’d expect the Italian to mould the team to his liking and expectations.
Blaise Matuidi is on his way to MLS, Gonzalo Higuain will leave Juventus and now Aaron Ramsey looks the latest victim of Pirlo’s overhaul. The former player turned coach does not want Ramsey and has been told to find a new club. The Wales midfielder arrived on a free transfer from Arsenal in 2019. While he was a regular choice under Sarri, making 35 appearances under him, Andrea Pirlo doubts his qualities are suited for the Old Lady.
According to the Mirror, Andrea Pirlo has told Aaron Ramsey that he doesn’t feature in his plans and the 29 year old midfielder is free to sort his future elsewhere. Pirlo is, in fact, looking to offload Sami Khedira as well in a bid to bring someone like Paul Pogba back to Turin.

With Juventus keen to offload Aaron Ramsey, should Everton fancy their chances in signing the Welshman? Yes. Aaron Ramsey gets a lot of stick but in reality, he is a talented and competent midfielder that can enhance any midfield he features in. Everton can make use of his silky short passing and box-to-box abilities, something the Toffees have missed for long. Tom Davies isn’t suited for that role.
His injury concerns do put me off a little bit but while on pitch his brilliance in the middle of the park does catch the eye, Capable of playing as a number 10 or even as a deep lying playmaker, Ramsey offers a plethora of options. He may not be able to do the Idrissa Gueye job in the midfield but his late runs into the box are second to none.
If Aaron Ramsey is to move away from Bianconeri, he may target a Premier League return and a team like Everton can be an ideal fit. His £250,000 a week wages will be a hesitation factor but even Ramsey will be aware that he will have to compromise on his wages in order to find playing time.
It is unlikely any of the top six Premier League teams will target Ramsey but for a team like Everton, acquiring him on a loan from Juve may work out for all parties.
