Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves are interested in former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, with him out of favour at Juventus, according to reports.

The midfielder came through the ranks at Cardiff City before he made the move to Arsenal in 2008 for around £4.8m.

Ramsey quickly established himself as a regular for the Gunners. Over the next eleven seasons, he was an integral player for them.

In this time, he played over 350 times for Arsenal and he won the FA Cup on three separate occasions.

Ramsey left Arsenal in 2019 to sign for Serie A giants Juventus on a free transfer. He has been a bit-part player for them while earning around £6.8m (€8m) per year.

Juventus are willing to let him leave this summer according to Gazzetta dello Sport (as cited by Inside Futbol).

The report adds that Tottenham‘s new managing director Fabio Paratici is keen to talk to Ramsey about a return to North London. It is also stated that Wolves are interested in the former Arsenal man.

Elsewhere, Paul Merson has named Wolves’ Raul Jimenez has the perfect replacement for Harry Kane:

“I have been following Wolves’ Raul Jimenez for quite some time now and I’m shocked that the big six have not made a note of his abilities. Jimenez has propelled Wolves to a mid-table finish and his side has struggled in his absence this year.

“Raul Jimenez is crucial to Wolves’ fortunes and their former manager Nuno Espirito Santo effectively lost his job because of the strikér’s absence. Santo’s Wolves side suffered devastating defeats to the likes of Burnley last season and nearly lost their place in the Premier League.

“With Nuno Espirito Santo now in North London, Spurs may well have an alternative to Harry Kane this season. With the England captain possibly on his way out, Santo will need to sign a replacement and Raul Jimenez suits the role to perfection.

“The center-forward could also bring the best out of Heung-Min Son and make him look like one of the best in the Premier League. Son’s new four-year contract at the club could either indicate Harry Kane’s decision to stay or could prepare Tottenham for a future with an alternative striker.

“Raul Jimenez’s involvement with the Mexico national team could deny him a move to a big club, however, given that the travel and time difference could complicate matters pertaining to his Premier League ambitions. I cannot possibly think of another reason why he has not been signed by a bigger club – Raul Jimenez is one of the best strikers on offer at the moment and is the most underrated player in the Premier League.”
