Juventus destroyer Khedira is not the Ramsey replacement that Arsenal really need

Juventus destroyer Khedira is not the Ramsey replacement that Arsenal really need

Ramsey made it clear that he wouldn't be staying at Arsenal after he stalled on a new contract offer from the Gunners leaving him free to negotiate with an overseas club and sign a pre-contract agreement.

"I don't know", he admitted.

Juve are more than happy to wait until the end of the season and now it seems that the Gunners have shifted to plan B.

WRAPUP 2-Powell tells markets Fed is flexible and aware of risks
The Fed's tightening cycle includes both rate hikes and the gradual shedding of its more than $4 trillion in assets. The US central bank has faced criticism from US President Donald Trump for moving too quickly to increase rates.

The 28-year-old is out of contract in June and from January 1, the Welsh worldwide has been able to negotiate with clubs and can sign a pre-contract.

Arsenal however appear to be preparing for Ramsey's departure, whether it comes sooner rather than later.

Juventus are prepared to offer Sami Khedira to Arsenal in Januray, in an attempt to sweeten the deal that would see Aaron Ramsey join them. "He's a great midfielder but at the moment he's an Arsenal player".

Windows 10 edges out Windows 7 as most popular operating system
Meanwhile, Microsoft also added 11 additional mouse pointer sizes in the Cursor and Pointers settings menu for a total of 15. The report adds that Windows 10 on 39.22% of all the Windows desktops in December 2018, while Windows 7 is on 36.9%.

His preferred destination is said to be Juventus and earlier this week the club's sporting director, Fabio Paratici, confirmed their interest. "I am just waiting for him to be OK to play but this morning he did not train with us". Because if he is deemed good enough for Juventus, Bayern Munich and Liverpool, then he is surely a player that Arsenal can't afford to lose.

"We start from an already high level, but we always look for ways to improve the team, we are open to market opportunities", he told Sky Sport Italia.

With Juventus and Ramsey keen on joining hands and Benatia not happy with his current situation in Italy, all parties stand to gain from a potential swap deal in the ongoing transfer window. But now that Unai Emery is interested in one of their fringe players, Juve might very well opt to bring in Ramsey and in turn, send Medhi Benatia the other way.
