As part of a call for Wolves to recruit an energetic box-to-box midfielder, Bull has identified Ramsey as an experienced option with a proven record in the Premier League.
Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (via FourFourTwo) has suggested that Wolves are in the running for the Welshman’s signature.
Speaking to Football FanCast, Bull claimed of the experiences Wales international: “I would take him all day long. I think if he was a few inches taller then he’d be exactly what I said early on about how we needed a box-to-box midfielder.
“He chases, puts his foot into a tackle where it hurts and I just can’t believe he hasn’t had much of a chance over there. If he does come back to the Premier League and Wolves want him then I would take him.”
Compared to other midfielders in Europe’s top leagues, Ramsey is in the lowest percentiles for attributes such as tackles, blocks, interceptions and aerial duels won in an indication that Ramsey is not a combative presence (as per FBRef).
Conversely, he offers 0.22 assists and over 2 shots per 90 minutes which far surpasses the average underlying data of players in a similar role – a testament to his playmaking threat – in a decisive revelation as to where Ramsey is best-suited.
Given Bull’s belief that Wolves need a hard-working midfielder with goal threat, a proven and available option in Aaron Ramsey could be a shrewd move for all parties.
Whether Ramsey would be willing to join a Premier League club other than his former employers remains to be seen, although you wouldn’t blame him for seeking more minutes following his time in Italy so far.
