Juventus have signed a contract with Arsenal's midfielder Aaron Ramsey, the Italian football club confirmed on Monday.

Ramsey will earn an eye-watering "basic" salary of £400k per week before tax in Turin, according to the BBC's David Ornstein.

The Wales global has agreed a pre-contract deal to join on July 1 when his Arsenal deal expires at the end of the season.

Ramsey's future had been the subject of speculation for some considerable time with his contract due to expire at the Emirates Stadium at the end of the current season.

While Ramsey is unlikely to challenge for a starting position in the attacking unit, the Welshman does have an eye for goal and has hit double figures across a season on three occasions.
