Arsenal legend Martin Keown has hit out at his old club after the news that Aaron Ramsey is set to join Juventus this summer.

Ramsey, off contract in June, has agreed terms with Juve worth €7.5m per season over five years.

The Guardian have claimed that Ramsey will earn upwards of £140,000 per week, making him the club's second-highest paid player behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

The former Wales captain has been promised a significant role in the club implying that he is likely to be a central figure in a three man midfield preferred by Max Allegri.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will reportedly undergo his Juventus medical on Sunday.

Arsenal fans just hope he doesn't end up joining a Premier League rival, because according to BBC Sport's David Ornstein, the Wales global has a preference if he were to stay in England.

When Emery first arrived in north London it was suggested that he would build the team around Ramsey in an effort to convince him to sign a new contract.

Ramsey signed for Arsenal from Cardiff for £4.8m.

'We need his performances for us and the last matches I am very happy with him'.

"His future is individually for him, for his family, his agent".

But BBC Sport say Ramsey has not decided where he will play yet even though Juventus is his "current preference". "We can only loan players", said Emery. I want his focus to be on us, and to be on West Ham on Saturday.

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, who Emery had on loan during his time at Sevilla, has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates.
