Reported West Ham target Aaron Ramsey scoops hugely embarrassing award ahead of expected January return to the Premier League.
West Ham enquired about how much it would cost to bring Juventus midfielder Ramsey to the London Stadium this month according to a report form Eurosport.
West Ham fans have not paid too much attention to the links to Ramsey, who simply does not seem to fit the profile of Moyes’s recruitment policy.
But some have pointed out West Ham’s fading hopes of bringing Jesse Lingard back to the club could mean there is no smoke without fire when it comes to the links to the former Arsenal midfield ace.
Eurosport claims that the Hammers have made an enquiry for the 31-year-old Juventus man.
It is suggested that the Hammers have asked how much the package to sign the 71-capped Wales international would cost us in January.
Juve are allegedly prepared to let Ramsey leave for a bargain fee in order to get his wages off the books and he is fully expected to return to the Premier League with Newcastle also said to be interested.
Many West Ham fans are dead against signing the injury-prone Welshman.
And they will have new ammunition after Ramsey scooped the hugely embarrassing award of the ‘biggest flop in Serie A’ (Football Italia).
The supposed West Ham target has been handed the Calcio Bidone award as the biggest flop in Serie A, beating Lazio striker Vedat Muriqi and another Bianconeri player, Arthur Melo.
The award is held every year in Italy to celebrate the ultimate Bidone – player you’d like to put in the bin. The award is not necessarily handed to the worst player but more the most disappointing.
“Ramsey was a free agent from Arsenal in 2019, but while he always did struggle with injuries, this season has been even less eventful with just 112 minutes of football for his club,” Football Italia states.
“The Wales international was top of the Calcio Bidone charts with 2,686 votes, only very narrowly beating Lazio centre-forward Muriqi, who had 2,567 votes.”
If David Moyes really is considering bringing Ramsey to east London then perhaps he needs to think again.
