Aaron Ramsey - January 2022 window Signs on loan with Rangers

Loads of news pieces on Aaron Ramsey at the moment, with reports of Newcastle, us, Leeds and Villa 'competing' over his signature.

On the face of it at 31 he doesn't look like a good fit with the current Palace approach but just for the sake of it I'm going to try and weigh things up.

Positively he'd add quality to the centre of midfield, and he'd fit our way of playing by pressing continuously, turning the ball over and then supporting the attack.

He's no more injury prone than you'd expect of a top flight player (particularly at 31) - he made 42 appearances last season.

Perhaps because of his style of high intensity, he hasn't completed a string of 90 minutes games since the end of 2017. When he starts (even in his last season at Arsenal in 18/19) he'd be subbed at 65-70 minutes in, so Vieira would need to take that into account.

As for the wages... we can't afford even half of what he's getting at Juve, but he allegedly wants to come to London, so who knows what can be done there.


When I started looking at him I thought 'No way', but overall now I'm not as negative as that. I think my biggest issue is how much longer his career might last compared to cost.

The only thing we know for sure is he would be expensive, have no resale value and only be effective for a few seasons. Of course, he is quality but there's too many negatives. Really hope we don't sign him, unless we intend flouting FFP rules because we will need to spend considerably elsewhere as well.

IMHO, this has got Newcastle written all over it.

It’s not going to cost us anything to get him I think so fee will go on wages.

If he is highest paid player for couple years, would have no problem he improves us it’s quite simple we have nothing like him. Would be great in that right central midfield role, feeding Olise.

Have said quite a bit about him in other threads but if the deal is right then its a no brainer.

Juve are willing to pay a huge chunk of his wages towards his wages for the rest of the season and aren't even that interested in a loan fee.

Roberts knows him very well from his time with Wales, PV also.

Not every signing can be an Eze or Olise type signing. PV has said himself we're an immature team and need some experienced heads in the side. Ramsey is considered a real leader and role model in the Wales dressing room and could be fantastic for the squad, as well as coming in and being arguably our best player.

I trust Freedman, PV and Roberts on this one. If the deal is right then get him in.

Sorry just scanned this thread.

Are we talking a loan until the end of the season?

Initially yes, but there is also talk of Juve paying his contract up to get him off their books.

If we were to look at a deal we should offer to cover wages only based on games. Something like we pay £200k for every game he starts. I think concern over fitness is the biggest barrier to the deal. We aren’t big enough to pay out fortunes while players are in the treatment room. If we could do something like that then he would be ideal. Would bring that extra bit of experience we need.

I can't take your calls for a technically proficient midfielder seriously anymore Would be on of the best midfielders to have played for the club, hands down. IF the terms are right, absolute no-brainer.

Deadline day, take what's on offer written all over this. Juve want as much as possible off their books, so if us paying him £60-70k a week is better than anything else available then move suits everyone.

I would normally be extremely skeptical of rumours like this, but as you say - they have a proven record of making shrewd signings so if they think Ramsey will improve the team and we can afford him, then I'm convinced!

He has fallen down the pecking order and on big wages. They need to get rid of a few before they can bring anyone in.

Donít think he has any interest in moving to the North East.

Roberts will be a huge player in this deal if it were to happen.

Possibly we are thinking we need cover for Gallagher as he wont be able to play v Chelsea in the Cup Final?

A fairly steady 35-40 games per season over the last 10 full seasons for Arsenal & Juventus would indicate no major injury issues.

78 European club appearances and 76 international caps.

Anyone who thinks he wouldn't be, at the very least, a better option than Luka / Schlupp / Reidewald in midfield is, frankly, mad.

If he has a little injury like young Mr Ferguson did, or would cost north of £100k per week, then they're other considerations, but purely on a football basis, surely no-one can seriously say no?

Smells like a Newcastle signing to me.

So injury prone, we've got over the worst years of injury problems we have had to then add another back to the team?

Here’s his injury record, Ramsey very much does have issues in this regard. To view the link you have to Register or Login

He’s played 3000 minutes for Juventus in 3 seasons. I.e, very very little. Despite his injury troubles, he often just wasn’t picked to start over players as average as Weston Mckennie. To view the link you have to Register or Login

This is not to say that he couldn’t be a worthwhile signing for palace though, on sensible wages.

As a Wales fan I can say his technical ability is outrageous, matched by his energy and commitment to the cause. He's an absolute leader. My favourite ever Wales player.

Viera being an Arse legend probably helps too!
