Ramsey to join french side Nice after Juventus exit

Aaron Ramsey, a midfielder from Wales, has joined Nice after being released by Juventus.

The 31-year-old arrives as a free agent less than a week after agreeing to end his contract with the Bianconeri, with Nice yet to reveal the length of his contract.

Ramsey joined Juventus in 2019 after his contract at Arsenal expired, but he struggled to establish himself in Italy, making only three Serie A appearances before joining Rangers on loan.

He played seven times for Rangers in the Scottish Premiership, but his time in Glasgow will be remembered mostly for his crucial penalty shoot-out miss in the Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville, which Rangers lost.

Ramsey will be eager to get some playing time in before the World Cup in Qatar in November.

He is the second Wales international to move to France’s top flight in as many days, following centre-back Joe Rodon, who joined Rennes on loan from Tottenham on Tuesday.

Nice finished fifth in Ligue 1 last season and have since signed Alexis Beka Beka, Rares Ilie, and Badredine Bouanani.

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and Empoli centre-back Mattia Viti have also been linked with moves to the club.
