New Arsenal manager Unai Emery and Aaron Ramsey disagreed over the striker’s best role in the team as he is set to leave Arsenal for Juventus at the end of the season.

Ramsey who will be out of contract at the end of the season has reportedly agreed a deal with the Serie A champions.

Emery came with a different style of football which didn’t suit Ramsey’s as he wanted a free role where he could roam around as number 8 but Emery wanted a much deeper role without the license to roam.

The former PSG boss has transformed the team mainly using Gabonese striker Pierre Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette as attackers and this has not appealed to Ramsey who now feels he should leave.
