Aaron Ramsey and four Man Utd stars on Newcastle United transfer list as West Ham and Everton circle
Aaron Ramsey once again showed the world that he is a wonderfully and wonderfully gifted footballer in Prague on Friday night.
The 30-year-old’s sublime first goal midway through the first half of an extremely encouraging 2-2 draw against the Czech Republic was matched with a performance that silenced a number of critics – both at home and, perhaps, in Italy.
The midfielder’s move to Juventus has been the subject of recent weeks, with some playing time under Massimiliano Allegri this season raising questions about his future at Turin.
Rightly or wrongly, there is a growing sense in Italy that Ramsey has failed to justify his high salaries, especially in the difficult financial climate created by Covid, so talking about an exit might not be so. surprising.
Indeed, rumors of a possible move have been quietly accelerating for some time, although it should be noted that Ramsey himself has given little indication that he would be interested in stopping his Serie career. TO.
In contrast, Wales boss Rob Page was quite frank in admitting that he would like to see Ramsey again soon in the Premier League, adding: “Fans have to watch him to see him. Watching him in training today he does things, he makes you lose your breath.
“We all know what he’s capable of.”
If a return to the top flight of English football presented itself as a possibility, there would certainly be no shortage of potential suitors.
According to Italian media outlet Calciomercato, Everton and West Ham United are among those who have shown tentative interest recently, but there is another name that may well now have the upper hand.
Despite lingering near the bottom of the Premier League, Newcastle United are surely set to write big checks in the very near future.
The Magpies have effectively become the richest club in the world following a £ 300million takeover by a Saudi-backed consortium, and there’s every chance they are looking to do so. proof of their financial strength when the transfer window reopens in the new year.
Before the BIP money fell on Tyneside, Ramsey was already believed to be on the Magpies’ radar, although under Mike Ashley’s joyless and unambitious regime it always seemed like a far-fetched proposition.
But this takeover has undoubtedly changed the landscape.
Newcastle would surely be in a good position to strike a deal, although Ramsey would be interested in swapping a black and white shirt for another is perhaps another question.
Either way, he’s just one of many players who should be mentioned as a potential transfer target over the next few weeks.
According to our colleagues from the Manchester Evening News, there are four players at Manchester United who could also be on the radar at St James’ Park.
French striker Anthony Martial is one of those at Old Trafford who would weigh his options, having dropped down the pecking order in light of the arrivals of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The striker has only made five Premier League appearances so far this season, and a move to the northeast may well be seen as the best solution for all parties.
Another who could be targeted is Jessie Lingard, who enjoyed a huge recovery on loan at West Ham United last season, while Eric Bailly was also mentioned.
The latest player linked to the Magpies is Donny van de Beek, who has simply failed to establish himself at Old Trafford since transferring £ 30million from Ajax in 2020.
