Ryan Giggs makes prediction about Aaron Ramsey ahead of Arsenal exit
Ryan Giggs discusses Aaron Ramsey's proposed transfer to Juventus from Arsenal this year
Ryan Giggs believes that Aaron Ramsey will improve as a player if he moves Juventus from Arsenal as expected.
The 28-year-old midfielder’s situation at The Emirates has been a constant source of speculation of late after he entered into the final few months of his contract at the north London club.
Arsenal appear to have no intention of renewing his current deal with the Gunners, and the midfielder is now free to speak to foreign clubs about a potential move away when his deal expires in the summer.
According to widespread reports, Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus to move to the Serie A side at the end of the season.
That’s despite the midfielder having scored two goals and made six assists in 20 Premier League games for Arsenal so far this season.
And should the move to Juventus go through as expected, Wales manager Giggs seems to think that it will help Ramsey to move up a gear.
Asked if the proposed move will benefit Ramsey for the Wales national team, Giggs told Sky Sports: “I hope so.
“You’ve seen the effect it’s had on Gareth Bale. He’s going to a top-class football club, one of the best in the world. That will improve you as a player.
“When you’re an international coach, all you want is your players playing and he’ll be playing at the highest level.”
Meanwhile, Ramsey could be set to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners take on Giggs’ old club Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup at The Emirates on Friday night.
