Aston Villa and Brighton and Hove Albion are yet to convince Aaron Ramsey to join them after talks were initiated about a move this month.

That’s according to Gazzetta Dello Sport, who say the Welshman is only ‘partially convinced’ by the offers presented by either side.

Juventus are keen to get rid of Ramsey this month as the midfielder is not in Max Allegri’s plans, and his €7m a year wages are considered a ‘luxury’.

That is money Juve think could be better spent elsewhere, and they are desperate to get rid this month if they can.

A return to the Premier League is the most likely outcome, and several clubs have been linked with a move over the last few months.

Gazzetta Dello Sport cover that today and state that the ‘hunt for a new club’ is not having ‘any particular luck’ at this moment in time.

While talks have been held with the likes of Aston Villa and Brighton, they have only gone up to a certain point and ‘partially convinced’ the player.

What that means isn’t made clear, but the suggestion is that both clubs have spoken to Ramsey about a move this month.

Perhaps a stumbling block for both sides is the money involved, with neither likely to match Ramsey’s current wages or anywhere near them, and it already stated on several occasions that the Welshman doesn’t want to drop.

Aston Villa are already spending a fortune on Philippe Coutinho’s wages, so giving Ramsey €7m is surely out of the question, while that figure simply doesn’t fit into how Brighton do things.

Talks have been held, though, and Juventus remain hopeful that the ‘right spark’ will be ignited as soon as possible, and they can get rid.
