Ramsey will make the move from Arsenal in the summer, having signed a four-year contract with the Italian champions, tying him to the club until 2023.
Juventus released a statement on their official website Monday evening, confirming the 28-year-old will join the Old Lady this summer:
“Juventus Football Club S.p.A. announces that a contract of employment with the player Aaron James Ramsey, effective as of 1st July 2019 and expiring on 30 June 2023, has been signed.

With his current deal expiring in the summer, Ramsey had been free to talk to overseas clubs about a move since January, and Juventus always appeared to be the strongest suitor for his services.
Arsenal also released a statement on Monday evening, thanking the Welshman for his time at the club:
“Aaron’s made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008. He has always been a consummate professional and will always have a special place in the hearts and memories of Arsenal fans around the world. We look forward to Aaron helping the team to a strong end to this season before he joins Juventus in the summer.”
Arsenal fans won’t be too surprised by this news, but it will still come as a blow to see Ramsey leave London to join up with Cristiano Ronaldo and company. Though he has only played in nine Premier League games this season, he’s scored 62 goals and added 64 assists in 361 appearances for the Gunners.
He’ll join a stacked Juventus midfield that boasts the likes of Miralem Pjanić and Douglas Costa, who will likely be looking to earn a ninth Scudetto as they’re on course to win their eighth successive Serie A title this season.
