Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been linked with a move away from the Italian club at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old has failed to establish himself as a key player for Juve over the last two seasons, scoring just six goals in 64 appearances.
The former Arsenal player struggled to adapt to Maurizio Sarri’s system and is now struggling to hold down a regular starting berth under Andrea Pirlo.
With just two years left on his contract, it is unsurprising that Juventus want to cash in on Ramsey.
According to Calciomercato, the midfielder earns around €7 million per season and is proving to be a burden for the Serie A outfit.
West Ham United and Crystal Palace are keen on Ramsey, but his wages could be a problem for any potential suitor.
Ramsey was an exceptional player for Arsenal, and a return to his comfort zone might help him rebuild his confidence.
The Hammers could secure Europa League football next season and that would certainly give them an edge over Crystal Palace in the transfer chase.

The Hammers could definitely use a goalscoring midfielder, and Ramsey could prove to be a quality short term addition to David Moyes’ midfield.
Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek are quality players, but Ramsey would add a different skill set to West Ham’s engine room.
The Welshman would bring craft and imagination along with goals. He knows the Premier League well and could make an immediate impact if he moves to the London club.
