Crystal Palace bringing in Juventus star Aaron Ramsey this summer would be a “sign of intent”, says former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer.
Ramsey has been linked with a surprise move to Selhurst Park, with reports in Italy (via Wales Online) claiming Palace are one English side interested in signing the 30-year-old.
Ramsey has had a mixed time in Juventus since arriving from Arsenal back in 2019. He has not always been a starter and has had some injuries, though the Welshman has managed to pick up a Serie A title and Coppa Italia trophy.
Can Palace lure Ramsey to Selhurst Park?
Whatever the case, Palmer believes Palace would be making quite the statement by signing him, though he feels it will be a difficult deal to pull off.
“It is a sign of intent. I was hearing the rumour that Arsenal were interested in signing him,” the ex-Leeds United player said in an exclusive interview with TIF.
“I would think he’s having a fantastic Euros. I would think, with no disrespect to Crystal Palace, I would think there’ll be bigger clubs that will be in for him.”
A high-profile player with his sort of Premier League experience, you would certainly expect more clubs to be after Ramsey this summer, so this certainly looks like a tricky transfer for Palace.
