Aaron Ramsey could leave Arsenal this month rather than at the end of the season when his contract expires, with Juventus holding a player who Unai Emery is believed to be keen to add to his squad.

Ramsey joined from hometown club Cardiff as a youngster and has won three FA Cups in his time at the North London club.

And ESPN claim Emery was the one who pulled the plug on Ramsey's contract due to him not fitting into his future plans. "For now, he is an Arsenal player". Arsenal midfielder Ramsey is free to talk terms with other clubs this month as he is out-of-contract in the summer, and he has not been short of suitors. On Tuesday, he scored and had a good performance.

While Benatia has forfeited his place in the team to Leonardo Bonucci after the Italian's return from Milan, any injuries to the current centre back pairing could see him play a major part at some point in the campaign.

Juventus are the front-runners, with the Italian champions making it clear to Ramsey that they want him to bolster a midfield that already contains Miralem Pjanic, Sami Khedira, Emre Can, Blaise Matuidi, Federico Bernardeschi and Rodrigo Bentancur. It's certainly a positive when you can say that new player X improves a team at a certain position, but ultimately a transfer move truly makes an impact when it bridges the gap with your competitors.
