Former Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey could make a shock move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer after Serie giants Juventus reportedly offered the Welsh midfielder to the north London club.
Ramsey, 29, joined Juventus last summer on a free transfer but has struggled to make an impact in Turin so far.
With the coronavirus pandemic causing financial worries across several clubs in Europe, Juventus may be forced to part ways with Ramsey, who earns a salary of around £400,000-a-week.
And according to the Sun, Spurs are one of several clubs who could make a move for Ramsey later this year, with either a loan or a permanent deal being discussed as an option.

Ramsey’s salary could end up being a stumbling block in negotiations, but the same report says Juventus could accept a lower transfer fee in order to increase the chances of getting him off the wage bill.
The former Cardiff player could also join his next club, for example Jose Mourinho’s squad, on a loan deal with Juventus paying a fraction of the Welshman’s wages.
Ramsey spent 11 years at Arsenal between 2008 and 2019, making 369 appearances and scoring 64 goals
The midfielder also scored the winning goal in two FA Cup finals for the Gunners, in 2014 and 2017 against Hull City and Chelsea respectively, before leaving for Juventus as his contract ran out.
Ramsey, his representatives and the Gunners, who were then managed by Unai Emery, could not reach a deal to extend his Arsenal contract.
He has made only 24 appearances for the Serie A giants this season, scoring just four times.
He was left out of Maurizio Sarri’s squad for Friday night’s Coppa Italia semi-final against AC Milan, which Juventus drew 0-0.
However, Ramsey did start Juventus’ last Serie A match before lockdown, a 2-0 win over title rivals Inter Milan where the 29-year-old scored and provided an assist for Paulo Dybala.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
