Aaron Ramsey: Could the Welshman still cut it in the Premier League amid interest from Burnley? | Soccer News
Could Aaron Ramsey still cut it in the Premier League? And what would he bring to Burnley if he moved to Turf Moor? Sky Sports’ Jack Wilkinson looks to the midfielder’s time with Juventus and Wales for answers…
Ramsey’s Juventus Adventure
Ramsey was widely applauded for taking the leap to play overseas, and it was a move that was almost certainly justified.
Although he didn’t quite reach the levels he achieved in his final season at Arsenal, Ramsey’s first two campaigns at Juventus under Maurizio Sarri and then Andrea Pirlo were successful and saw the Welsh win the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup titles.
However, problems have arisen this season under Massimiliano Allegri, mainly in the form of injuries, which have limited him to just three Serie A appearances this season.
In fact, Ramsey has missed 17 games this season, as many as he did in his first two seasons combined at Juventus.
Ramsey will undoubtedly look back on his time at Juventus, the success he enjoyed and the opportunity to discover a new football culture, with fondness, but for a 31-year-old player, and with a good part of his career. remaining, he cannot appear as rarely as he did.
With Juventus expected to take Ramsey’s big salary off the wage bill, leaving the club could suit both the club and the player.
Could Ramsey still cut it in the Premier League?
We get a better indication of the prowess Ramsey still possesses and his eventual suitability at Burnley if we study his performance for Wales since moving to Juventus.
Remarkably, Ramsey has scored more goals for his country, 13, since joining Juventus than he actually has for Juventus, and this despite playing three times as many Serie A games. .
If you throw in the mix that Burnley have put together in a low block similar to Wales, a system in which Ramsey thrives as his country’s talisman, Burnley’s interest makes even more sense, and that could to be a match made in heaven.
Would Ramsey improve Burnley?
In terms of name and reputation alone, three-time FA Cup winner Ramsey would certainly sprinkle stardust on Sean Dyche’s side, which has earned the somewhat harsh label of Premier League mercenaries.
But whether Ramsey would be an upgrade on the options already at Turf Moor is entirely up for debate.
If we compare Ramsey to Maxwel Cornet, who has been a revelation since joining the Clarets for a club-record £12.9million in August 2021, the Frenchman has scored more league goals over the course of this campaign than Ramsey in two and a half years. seasons at Juventus.
Meanwhile, Burnley midfielders Ashley Westwood and Dwight McNeil have had more goalscoring involvements than Ramsey has registered in the same two-and-a-half-season span.
It’s certainly not a given that Ramsey will step in and instantly resolve Burnley’s relegation fears, but, with just five days until deadline day, the Clarets need to assess whether his form for Juventus and Wales is enough to convince them it’s a calculated bet. worth taking.
