Leeds fans discuss reports that the Whites want to sign Juventus ace Ramsey on loan
Leeds United are reportedly pursuing a loan deal to sign Aaron Ramsey from Juventus in the January window, despite competition from Newcastle and Everton – and Leeds fans have responded on Twitter.
Ramsey, 30, is about to enter the last 18 months of his contract at Juventus. Since joining the club from Arsenal, he only played 65 times in his first two seasons – only five times this season.
Indeed, he last played in October – making a substitute appearance against Zenit St.Petersburg in the Champions League. A return to the Premier League is looking more and more likely for Ramsey.
CalcioMercato report that Newcastle and Everton are interested in signing Ramsey, while Leeds are also keen – but are only willing to take him on loan. Everton are willing to pay around £13million.
Newcastle are also readying a permanent move, while Leeds are happy to bring him to the club on loan. Juventus are ready to let him go, largely due to the 71-time Wales star’s huge £115k-a-week wages.
What are Leeds fans saying about a potential move for Ramsey?
Ramsey has plenty of issues. Not only is the Welshman incredibly injury prone, but he is lacking in game time. Under Marcelo Bielsa, one would suggest that his body might not be able to take the intensity.
What Ramsey does offer is enormous Premier League experience – having a hand in 130 goals during 371 games at Arsenal. Leeds fans have had their say on Twitter, regarding Ramsey.
