Juventus midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot could be set for summer moves to the Premier League as the Serie A club look to trim their wage bill, say reports.
Both players arrived in Turin on free transfers in 2019 and were handed contracts worth €7 million per year net.
That makes the pair the highest paid players in the Juve squad after Cristiano Ronaldo (€31m per year), Matthijs de Ligt (€8m) and Paulo Dybala (€7.3m).
Juve hope that selling two players they signed on free transfers for a combined €50m can give them some spending power to refresh an underachieving squad this summer.
The Italian champions value Ramsey at €20m, and Spurs and Wolves are the likeliest destinations for the Wales international.
Rabiot has a price tag of €30m and Juve could look to thrash out a deal to bring back Moise Kean and send Rabiot the other way amid interest from Everton, although Marseille are also monitoring his situation.
Juve want to reduce their wage bill from the current €236m per year net and the two underperforming midfielders are seen as dispensable.
Ramsey’s time in Italy has been plagued with injury and he has missed nine games this season due to muscular problems.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
