Arsenal were prepared to hand Aaron Ramsey over to Juventus now in exchange for Medhi Benatia, but the Bianconeri rejected it.
It is widely reported that Ramsey has already agreed terms to join Juve at the end of the season as a free agent, once his contract has expired.
The Bianconeri were eager to get him in their squad from the January transfer window, but Unai Emery doesn’t want to lose him six months early.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal would only have let Ramsey leave early if Juve included defender Benatia as part of the exchange.
However, as previously reported elsewhere, the Bianconeri have no intention of losing the Morocco international mid-season, despite interest from Arsenal, Schalke 04 and Milan.
