Aaron Ramsey is not actively looking to force a move away from Juventus this summer, contrary to recent reports.

The Wales international joined the club in 2019 on a free transfer and his current deal is not due to expire until 2023. However, reports in Italy last week claimed the 30-year-old had been hoping to negotiate the early termination of his contract.

According to Sky Sports, sources close to the player have indicated this is simply not true and that in fact, the return of Massimiliano Allegri is seen as a good reason to stay. During his time in Turin so far, Ramsey has shown glimpses of what it was that convinced the club to swoop for him, without hitting the heights Premier League fans know he's capable of.

Ramsey made just 22 appearances in Serie A last season and was only included in the starting lineup a third of the time. However, given Allegri's known admiration for the former Arsenal man, he's expected to play a bigger role next season, should he stay injury-free.

With Wales being knocked out of Euro 2020 at the weekend, the midfielder will now be reporting for pre-season training sooner than he would have done had they progressed, giving him the opportunity to impress and stake his claim for a place in the starting XI.

Ramsey had been linked with a move back to the Premier League and specifically, a return to the Emirates Stadium but it appears a move away from Italy is not something the player himself is considering at present.

Given the financial implications of the global pandemic, Juventus are unlikely to rule out selling the player should a substantial offer arrive but as it stands, Ramsey is staying put. The Bianconeri squeezed into next season's Champions League with a fourth-place finish and will be hoping to wrestle back the Scudetto from Inter under the guidance of Allegri.
