Aaron Ramsey signs £400,000-a-week contract with Juventus

The Welshman has sealed a pre-contract agreement with the Serie A giants after 11 years at the Emirates, having joined from Cardiff City in 2008.

The Evening Standard also claims that Jurgen Klopp is an admirer of the midfielder's talents, but remains more than content with the options he now has at his disposal in this position.

As his contract will have ended, Arsenal will not be entitled to a transfer fee.

"As you may have already heard, I have agreed a pre-contract with Juventus football club", Ramsey wrote.

Ramsey completed a two-part medical with Juventus last month and will join the club on July 1 - bringing to an end 11 years at Arsenal.

Welsh worldwide Ramsey has already passed a January medical at Juve, and will link up with Massimiliano Allegri's team over the summer.

The deal will make him Juve's second-highest earner behind Cristiano Ronaldo, who earns £500,000 a week.

The versatile midfielder, who has scored 61 times for Arsenal, would prefer a free number eight role but has been restricted to a deeper position in the Gunners' current system.

Ramsey has made 22 league appearances for Arsenal this season, scoring twice, including a splendid strike against Fulham in October that was regarded by many as an early contender for goal of the season.
