According to the Daily Express, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Italian giants Juventus. The news will come as no surprise to anybody, as the move has been mooted for the past month or so.
Arsenal were reportedly attempting to sell the midfielder to the Bianconeri in the January transfer window to claw some money back for the midfielder. However, that was always an unlikely prospect.

The story of Aaron Ramsey as an Arsenal player is about to come to an end, that much has been known for a while now. His current deal ends with this season, and there won’t be a new one.

The Swiss defender arrives on a free transfer from Juventus, where he won the Serie A title in each of his seven seasons there.
