Newcastle fans react as club reportedly open talks to sign player with 67 caps
Newcastle are reportedly in talks to sign Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey with The Old Lady desperate to offload the expensive Welshman. While signed on a free from Arsenal, Ramsey’s wages are enormous. Newcastle want him back in English football – and Toon fans have reacted on Twitter.
Ramsey, 30, joined Juventus in the summer of 2019 from Arsenal on a free transfer. But since then, he has scored just six goals in 65 games for Juve. On a massive contract, the 67-time Wales international is a player Juve are keen to move on. Newcastle could end up bringing him to Tyneside.
Do Newcastle stand a chance, and what do fans think of Ramsey?
Goal report that Newcastle are in talks to sign Ramsey. A previous report from TuttoJuve claims that interested parties would have to spend in the region of £10million to sign Ramsey. The midfielder would certainly be an excellent signing for the Toon – but do they stand a chance of getting him?
Mike Ashley’s unwillingness to spend lots of money this summer rules out a permanent move for Ramsey – even if Juve want just £10million. His wages are too much. But if Newcastle want him on loan, perhaps a deal could be arranged in which the Toon only pay a small portion of his wages.
Newcastle fans have given their reaction on Twitter and while many think it is unlikely – they are desperate to see Ramsey on Tyneside.
