CHELSEA and Liverpool will reportedly have to fight it out with Juventus for Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey.
The Welsh midfielder will be a free agent in May when his contract at The Emirates expires.
Maurizio Sarri’s Blues and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were believed to be the front runners for the 27-year-old after Arsenal withdraw their offer of a new extension.
Now the Daily Mail claim the Italian giants have entered the chase.
And they hold a key advantage over their rivals in the pursuit for Ramsey.
Due to being abroad, they will be able to begin talks and offer him a lucrative pre-contract package as early as January.
And with no transfer fee needed, Ramsey could easily command a deal of around £250,000-a-week.
The ace’s unwillingness to move his young family overseas had led many to believe it was Chelsea and Liverpool leading the hunt.
But The Mail’s report states Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is a huge fan of the ex-Cardiff City ace.
And the prospect of silverware while returning to the Champions League could just be enough to convince Ramsey to begin a new chapter in Turin.
