Fabio Paratici on Ramsey
The Welshman has played 30 games across all competitions for Arsenal this season, in which he has scored three and assisted seven.
While this is a decent goal contribution return for a midfielder, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici believes Arsenal are not getting the best out of Ramsey.
Paratici has stated that Ramsey is best suited to playing Ramsey in the ‘mezzala’ role in a three-man midfield:
“He is a different player from what we have got. We don’t have someone like him in our squad.
“He is more technical, he’s a final ball man, he has a nose for the goal.
“Ramsey is a player who, I reckon, has never found his position, because he has never played as a ‘mezzala’ in a three, which is his role.
“He can also play a bit further up the pitch, like [Simone] Perrotta did at Roma, for example.”As quoted by the Evening Standard.
Arsenal’s next game sees them take on BATE in the Europa League on Thursday.
