Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and director Fabio Paratici are believed to be huge admirers of Ramsey, who could not agree to a contract extension with Arsenal and is set to leave the club on a free deal after spending 10 years with the Gunners.

The Welsh star is expected to pocket £7.2m annually with a weekly wage of £140,000 making him Bianconerri second most top earner.

With no transfer fee involved, Ramsey's contract with Juve will make him the highest-paid British player in the world - something Real were not prepared to match.

Other reports suggest that Ramsey will head to Italy on Sunday to complete his medical ahead of the move.

Juventus now sit at the top of the Serie A table but Ramsey's addition could give the squad more depth in the midfield; perhaps enough to make a serious bid for a Champions League title.

Speaking on Thursday, Arsenal boss Unai Emery spoke out regarding Ramsey's situation. I want his focus to be on us, and to be on West Ham on Saturday. He asked in Blackpool to play, he said: "Coach, I want to play".

Ramsey has had his injury problems but Juventus are delighted to have secured the midfielder on a free transfer, while.

"After, his future belongs to him, his family and agent". His future I respect a lot because it is a very private decision. But every day in training he is working very well. He played with a big commitment to us.

"But between him and us, I am very happy with him now".
