Liverpool legend and former Juventus player Ian Rush has claimed that Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will enjoy his time with the Italian champions, and expects the Welshman to be able to hold his own alongside superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ramsey is expected to sign for Juventus in the summer as his contract with Arsenal is coming to an end, with the London club choosing not to offer an extension to the Welshman despite him being ready to stay.
Rush believes that playing in the star-studded lineup of Juventus would be a great experience for the player, who has spent a decade with Arsenal since moving there as a teenager.
“I think [Juventus] is a fantastic move for him,” Rush told ESPN FC. “When I went there it was an industrial city but it’s come on a million times better since I was there.
“I think Juventus are an amazing club. They’ve still got connections with the Agnelli family, Andrea Agnelli is the president there and Gianni Agnelli was the owner when I was there. So they are very passionate about it.
“I think he’d do really well, you’ve got Ronaldo there to play with and all that, so that’s something special. But I think Aaron will be something special for Juventus and I’m sure he’ll enjoy it.”
Although nothing has been confirmed officially, it is known that Ramsey has agreed to move to Juventus in the summer, with even a part of the medical already having been done by the Italian club.
