Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has shared an image of Aaron Ramsey in a Rangers shirt as he confirms the Juventus midfielder’s move to Ibrox a “done deal”.
The Italian is always at the forefront of big transfer moves on Twitter and whilst we can’t verify the legitimacy of the image, it has Rangers fans everywhere salivating.
Set to sign in “the coming hours”, the signing of Aaron Ramsey is a major statement of intent for Rangers as they look to bolster the club’s squad this season.
With the Scottish Premiership and Champions League millions on the line the signing of the Welsh international gives everyone associated with the club a massive boost.
Attention will now turn to the particulars of the deal with Fabrizio Romano confirming that Aaron Ramsey will join Rangers on a loan-to-buy.
Rangers set for Aaron Ramsey loan move
According to TalkSPORT Juventus will be covering the majority of the Aaron Ramsey’s wages with the player’s contract set to expire in 2023.
Most of the reports suggest that the move will be a loan with option-to-buy but more details have been revealed by journalist Mirko di Natale.
di Natale claims Rangers could look to cover €2m (£1.7m) of the player’s €3.5m (£2.9m) salary for the remainder of the season, that’s the majority of them.
The Italian journalist later reports that the option to buy at the end of the season will be €6m (£5m). This means Rangers could wind up paying £6.7m for the player, if they opt to keep him in June.
Rangers fans can now get excited at the prospect of Aaron Ramsey turning out at Ibrox and what a singing this will be by the club if they can get it confirmed.
But whilst Fabrizio Romano is normally on the pulse with these things and probably wouldn’t risk his reputation or following, we don’t blame you for waiting until Rangers announce the move themselves.
Aaron Ramsey could be joined by Mateusz Żukowski at Rangers, the Polish U21 international also closing in on a move.
Rangers are also being linked elsewhere on deadline amid claims from another journalist that the Gers had a second bid rejected for a high-profile target.
