NEWCASTLE are the bookies’ favourite to sign Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
Betfair suspect the Magpies could face stiff competition for his signature from both Crystal Palace and Everton
The bookmaker have cut Newcastle from 5/2 favourites to now 5/4 to sign the Welshman.
But there are three other Premier League clubs in the mix.
Newcastle lead Crystal Palace (5/1), Everton (8/1) and Leeds (12/1) ahead of the January transfer window.
Ramsey hasn’t started a game for Juventus since the opening day of the season, with his current campaign having been hit with niggly injuries and a lack of form.
The former Arsenal man turned 31 on Boxing Day and could be looking for more game time as he enters the latter stages of his career.
With his current contract running until 2023, now might be the best time for Juventus to push a move through for the midfielder to get the most value.
Aaron Ramsey most likely destination will be a return to the Premier League, where he has already proven himself as a quality midfielder, having played 371 times for Arsenal since signing as a 17-year-old from Cardiff.
The Wales ace left Arsenal on a free transfer in 2019, signing a four-year contract to join Italian giants Juventus and earning himself £400,000 a week.
Since joining the Old Lady, the Welshman has notched just six goals and six assists for the Turin club in all competitions, including just 34 starts.
