Robert Pires has tipped former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey to return to the club following his time with Juventus in Serie A.

The Welshman left the club back in 2019 after more than a decade with the north London outfit as he joined the Italian giants on a free transfer.

Speaking to TuttoJuve, the former Highbury favourite claimed that the £18m-rated Wales international would stay with the Turin outfit for a few more years before returning.

Pires said: “He is very intelligent and knows how to adapt everywhere, Juve is a very big club and Serie A is improving him even more. He needs to stay a few more years and then he will return to Arsenal. It is my belief, I am not a fortune teller.”

Should Arsenal bring Aaron Ramsey back to the club?

Yes

No

No

Well, it would be tough to justify bringing the midfielder back to the club given his long struggle with injury. Ramsey has endured a stop-start career in Italy thus far, suffering eight seperate injuries in just over 18 months.

In any case, Arsenal possesses far too many quality midfielders in their ranks to justify any inclusion of the 30-year-old, who would most likely be a bench option anyway. The likes of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Joe Willock and Matteo Guendouzi could all be ahead of the former Gunners man in the pecking order given their form, ability and age compared to Ramsey.

Willock is a more interesting case compared to the other three players. At just 21-years-old, the young Englishman has displayed a great hunger and desire to go beyond the striker and score goals. It has been a consistent part of his play since he broke into the first-team and has been apparent in this season’s Europa League.

Bringing back Ramsey would be more hazardous than helpful. The central player has done all he can for the club, but, you feel with all that’s going on, bringing him back could well tarnish his legacy.

In other news, this Arsenal defender needs to be dropped after back-to-back struggles.
