Aaron Ramsey will be leaving Arsenal when his contract expires next summer, and he’s going to be holding talks with five of Europe’s top clubs.
Starting from January 1, the opening of the transfer window, Ramsey is able to negotiate and sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign sides.
The Welshman is considering moves to PSG, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Juventus, and Bayern Munich, according to the BBC.
Over the past week speculation over Ramsey’s future destination has stepped up, with Juventus being the current most likely club to acquire his services.
The 28-year-old is reportedly ‘increasingly tempted’ by a move to Turin and the Italian champions.
Juventus are also said to be looking at 18-year-olds Jean-Clair Todibo and Francisco Trincao.

Paris Saint-Germain are likely to rival Juventus for Ramsey’s signature on a free transfer, but now it seems a number of other clubs are in the hunt too.
Whichever team he does go to will probably have to offer a pretty sizable contract, with reports claiming Ramsey will be seeking a yearly salary of around £6.3 million, around £121,000 per week.

Aaron Ramsey currently earns around £110,000 per week at Arsenal. He was pushing for a better deal before talks collapsed earlier this year, starting off his path to departure.
Chelsea and Manchester United have also reportedly been interested in signing Ramsey when his contract expires, however a move abroad seems the most likely at the moment.
Teams are unlikely to make a move for Ramsey during the January transfer window, as it is thought Arsenal would ask for around £40million to allow him to leave in the middle of the season.
Aaron Ramsey has played 251 Premier League games for Arsenal, scoring 37 goals. So far this season in the league he’s made 17 appearances, scoring once.
