Aaron Ramsey is set to take charge of his future this month as both Everton and Newcastle plot a move to bring the Welshman back to the Premier League.

Ramsey spent over a decade in the English top flight at Arsenal before wrapping up a switch to Juventus back in 2019 after running down his contract at the Emirates.

But the midfield maestro has struggled to settle in Turin and has been consistently linked with a return to England after a disappointing stint in Serie A.

That hasn’t put off Everton or Newcastle – who are both desperate for reinforcements in the winter transfer window to help salvage their respective seasons.

A new report from Sport Mediaset has now claimed that Ramsey will personally negotiate his exit with the Italian giants over the next few weeks after his recent spell out of the team. The report goes on to state that the 31-year-old hasn’t even trained with the Juve squad for ‘some time’ – making a January exit seem almost inevitable.

A report in the Sunday Mirror last month revealed that Juve are even prepared to allow Ramsey to depart the club for nothing in a desperate bid to get his mammoth salary off the books.

Although Everton and Newcastle are keen on bringing Ramsey back to the Premier League, they’ll have to dig deep to fund a deal for the Cardiff City academy graduate – even if he is allowed to leave Italy for nothing.

The midfielder’s reported £230,000-a-week salary is likely to prove a stumbling block for most clubs who may hold an interest in rescuing Ramsey from his Juventus hell, but that may not necessarily be the case for Newcastle.

Following the club’s £305million Saudi-backed takeover, which was signed off in October, the Magpies are now the wealthiest club in the entire world. Their desire for a marquee signing in January is likely to mean the opportunity to sign someone of Ramsey’s ilk is too enticing to turn down; no matter the financial package.

Everton have also garnered a reputation for being willing to splash the cash since Farhad Moshiri became involved with the club back in 2016.

Unfortunately, Moshiri’s financial aid has failed to translate into success for the Toffees – who have struggled under ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez this year.

The Spaniard is under the cosh just six months into his premiership at Goodison Park and would welcome a move for Ramsey, who has already proven his abilities in the Premier League.
