Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed on a deadline-day transfer to Rangers, the club have confirmed.

Ramsey has spent the last three years of his career in Turin, having joined Juve on a free transfer following his departure from Arsenal in the summer of 2019.

The 31-year-old has struggled for form and fitness throughout his spell at the Allianz Stadium, and Rangers have now moved to capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding his future by offering him a place at Ibrox.

What's the situation?

GOAL previously confirmed that Rangers were working to sign Ramsey before the winter window closed on Monday, and the club have now announced that he has accepted an offer to join the Scottish champions.

Ramsey is due to become a free agent in the summer, but if he can impress at Ibrox over the next six months then he may be rewarded with a new permanent contract.

What has been said?

“I am really pleased to be joining a club like Rangers, where there is so much to look forward to between now and May," Ramsey told the club's official website.

“I had a number of offers on the table, but none matched the magnitude of this club, with European football and the chance to play in front of 50,000 fans every other week.

“I have had some fantastic conversations with the manager and Ross Wilson, and I’m really looking forward to working with both of them, and to meeting the supporters.”

Why are Juve letting Ramsey go?

Ramsey had been in and out of the Juve starting XI prior to this season and has fallen completely out of favour since Massimiliano Allegri's return as head coach last July.

The former Arsenal star has been restricted to just five appearances across all competitions for the Bianconeri in 2021-22, and Allegri openly admitted at the start of the January window that the club were seeking to move him on.

"Ramsey, he returned after we had given him a few days off to work, to train separately, in England," the Juve boss said at the start of the month. "In any case, he’s an outgoing player."
