This is a move as daring as it is clever made by Lucien Favre’s OGC Nice in this summer transfer window 2022. As we announced to you exclusively a little earlier today, Aaron Ramsey has come to an agreement with the management of the Aiglons to continue his career in Ligue 1, on the Côte d’Azur. An arrival made official in the evening of this Monday by the people of Nice.
“After the signing of young elements (Bulka, Bouanani, Ilie, Beka Beka), this time it is a man of experience who arrives at the Gym. A talented and charismatic leader: Aaron Ramsey. […] The midfielder, who also has 81 European Cup matches (65 in the Champions League), was seduced by the red and black challenge in the summer of 2022. Welcome home Aaron »indicates in particular the press release of the Aiglons, which did not specify the duration of this collaboration.
A risky bet
Former Arsenal executive, the Welsh international midfielder with 74 caps with the Dragons (20 goals) has a nice CV and has real qualities to put forward on the meadow. Still, his state of form has something to question. After 11 great years with the Gunners, although the adventure has (already) been marred by numerous injuries, Aaron Ramsey offered himself an interesting challenge by joining Juventus in Serie A in 2019. Hard to say that everything went well. passed like clockwork in Turin.
The Welshman has never managed to establish himself as an indisputable element of the Vecchia Signora. He will also have played only 69 games in total (6 goals, 6 assists). In Italy too, Aaron Ramsey will have experienced many physical glitches. This is probably one of the reasons why Juve decided to break his contract, after having loaned him to Rangers during the second half of the 21-22 season (2 goals and 2 offerings in 13 appearances). It now remains to be seen which version of the former Gunner OGC Nice inherited… and if the risky bet can turn into a nice masterstroke.
