Arsenal manager Unai Emery is reportedly desperate to keep Aaron Ramsey at the Emirates Stadium this month, rather than cash in on the soon-to-be free agent.
The Wales international is believed to have picked Juventus as his next club after holding initial talks with the Italian giants over a summer switch earlier this week.
Ramsey is free to discuss terms with overseas sides after entering the final six months of his Arsenal deal, with Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan and Real Madrid also said to be eyeing up the long-serving Gunners ace.
Arsenal, who pulled out of contract talks with the 28-year-old three months ago, also have the option of selling him before the end of January for a small fee.
The London Evening Standard suggests that Juventus would be willing to send Sami Khedira to North London as part of a deal to land Ramsey early, but Emery is said to be against the idea.
