Aaron Ramsey could be returning to the Premier League soon with Juventus keen to offload the midfielder and Newcastle are ready to pay his huge wages to bring him to St James’ Park
Newcastle are looking to bring in Juventus midfield Aaron Ramsey in January, according to reports.
The Welshman moved to Turin in 2019 when his Arsenal contract came to an end.
Ramsey penned a lucrative deal that sees him earn around £400k-a-week, but he has struggled to establish himself at the Italian side.
Juventus now want to get the 30-year-old off their wage bill as they eye other targets but finding a suitor could prove difficult due to his salary.
Newcastle though are “not scared” of pursuing Ramsey, whose gross salary is €14m, reports Tuttosport.
The player himself is open to leaving the Serie A club with a Premier League return on his radar.
Arsenal have previously been linked with a move for Ramsey, but they are well stocked in midfield and could struggle to finance any deal.
HAVE YOUR SAY! Who should be Newcastle’s next manager ? Comment below
The Welshman is unlikely to command a hefty fee – if any at all – with his contract up in the summer.
Newcastle are now backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, making them the richest club in the world.
They are not put off by Ramsey’s hefty wages and are reportedly happy to match them.
The midfielder has only played once in Serie A this season at Juventus, where Massimiliano Allegri has returned as manager.
The likes of Weston McKennie, Manuel Locatelli and Adrien Rabiot are ahead of him in the pecking order.
He has also struggled for minutes under Andrea Pirlo and Maurizio Sarri in the past.
Newcastle are on the lookout for a new manager whilst also weighing up January targets.
Steve Bruce was sacked recently with Graeme Jones taking temporary charge as a permanent successor is sought.
Jones drew with Crystal Palace in his first game and takes on Chelsea this weekend.
The Magpies are still eyeing their first win of the campaign and languish in the relegation zone.

Attracting players may prove difficult if Newcastle remain in contention for the drop, with Ramsey regularly playing Champions League football over the past decade.
Burnley’s James Tarkowski and Manchester United star Jesse Lingard are among the other names being linked.
Jones said ahead of the game with Chelsea: “What happens between now and January 1 is going to define our season and it would be remiss of me if I didn’t concentrate on the Chelsea game.
“We’ve got the Champions League winners coming here, so I’ve not thought about anything else.”
