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

Ramsey, 28, is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season and is set to leave on a free, after his management and the club failed to come to terms on a new contract.

Juventus are in talks to sign Ramsey on a free transfer in the summer when his contract at the Emirates Stadium expires.

"I have been watching him and see he is concentrated. I am just waiting for him to be OK to play but this morning he did not train with us".

"I want his focus every day with us on training and thinking for the next match, which is against Blackpool", Emery said. Yes, he has been involved on a regular basis this season, but Ramsey has started less than half of Arsenal's Premier League games, and he is definitely not one of Emery's A-listers.


However, Juventus want to land their man in the January transfer window itself, and feel that using Sami Khedira as a makeweight in negotiations may persuade the London club to part with the midfielder in the coming weeks. Ramsey joined Arsenal back in 2008 from Cardiff and will be leaving them after 11 years. But the prospect of linking up with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus has proved too good an offer to refuse and his arrival will give an already potent midfield unit even more options.

But now Arsenal believe they can do without him, and unless the supporters are able to force Emery to change his mind, Ramsey will be off in the summer.

"Then, all of a sudden, they sign Lucas Torreira who, for me, has been Arsenal's best player this season. For now, he is an Arsenal player".
