Juventus legend Andrea Pirlo has given his approval over the club’s reported interest in Aaron Ramsey

The Wales international is set to leave Arsenal at the end of the season once his contract expires.

Ramsey is a highly-regarded midfielder, who has also attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid.

But reports emerged last week that Juventus are now the front-runners for Ramsey’s services and have begun working on a deal.

Pirlo, who spent four years starring in the Juventus midfield, believes Ramsey would be an excellent addition to the squad at Turin.

“Ramsey is a great purchase,” Pirlo said on Sky Sport Italia, via MSN.

“Juventus are preparing another excellent deal. He is a strong player and could do very well.”

Since arriving from Cardiff City in 2008 for just £5m, Ramsey has since managed 61 goals and 63 assists in 353 appearances for Arsenal across all competitions.

The Welsh star has won three FA Cups at the club, which also saw him score the match-winner in two of those finals.
