West Ham have tabled an offer for Aaron Ramsey according to a report from ilBiancoNero.

Hammers boss David Moyes needs to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
More quality competition and cover is required for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.
A strong, physically robust and mobile defensive midfielder should be on the menu for Moyes.
So it was strange to see recent links with Aaron Ramsey. The Juventus midfielder had plenty of energy in his day but he’s not the same player anymore.
West Ham table Aaron Ramsey bid
The Hammers have made a concrete offer to sign the former Arsenal man according to ilBiancoNero.
The 30-year-old is an attacking midfielder as well so he wouldn’t be competing with Rice and Soucek for the defensive midfield positions.
With 66 international caps for Wales to his name, Ramsey clearly has something about him.
But he’s far too injury prone for Moyes’s hard-working setup and system. Since the start of the 2018/19 season, the 30-year-old has missed 271 days of action (Transfermarkt).
He has hardly set the world alight since joining Juventus two years ago. And there is the other matter of his astronomical £220k-a-week wages (Calcio Mercato).
There are far more pressing concerns at hand for Moyes other than bringing in an ageing, attacking midfielder.
Signing Aaron Ramsey would be a huge mistake. We would actually be far better off in letting another Premier League team sign him.
West Ham boss David Moyes has spoken numerous times before about wanting to sign young, talented and physically robust players. Ramsey doesn’t fit into this category.

We’re not sure if there is any truth to the report emanating from Italy. But if there is, it will be evidence of a very worrying transfer strategy.
