A big update has emerged on Rangers and Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s plans for Ibrox loanee Aaron Ramsey…
What’s the talk?
According to TEAMtalk, the Gers are plotting a potential swoop to sign the gem on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
He is currently on loan from Italian giants Juventus and the Serie A side are said to be willing to let him leave on a free transfer, despite his current contract expiring in the summer of 2023.
Should Rangers sign Ramsey permanently?
Arsenal icon Martin Keown once dubbed the Welshman as “outstanding” and that is exactly what he would be for van Bronckhorst next season.
He has already shown glimpses of what he is capable of in a Light Blues shirt, with two goals in his last two games, and it is exciting to think about what he could do with a full pre-season under his belt.
The £175k-per-week midfielder has enjoyed an excellent career at the top level and his pedigree suggests that there is more to come from him in Glasgow. He scored 65 goals and provided 65 assists in 371 matches for Arsenal, before heading to Turin to chip in with 12 goals and assists in 70 outings.
This shows that he has the quality to regularly deliver in the final third with his bursts forward from the middle of the park. He played in the number 10 role against Celtic and caught the eye with a SofaScore rating of 7.6, winning 100% of his duels, scoring a goal, and creating two chances for his teammates.
Ross Wilson sang the gem’s praises in January, saying: “Not only is Aaron a world-class player who will play a key role in our team, his level of ability and professional standards will be an inspiration to our existing players.”
His recent form in the Premiership is now starting to live up to the hype and it is down to him to continue to deliver on the pitch, whilst making sure that he does not suffer any injury setbacks.
Ramsey’s career statistics and his two goals in two league starts for Rangers suggest that he will be able to have a huge impact on the pitch next season if they sign him permanently. He has the quality to be an outstanding player for the Glasgow giants and van Bronckhorst will surely be keen to keep him.
Wilson must now work hard off the pitch to make this a deal that is financially viable for the Gers, to take advantage of Juventus being willing to let him go for nothing.
