Former Arsenal and Juventus star Aaron Ramsey has 'agreement in principle' with Nice for free transfer move | The Sun
AARON RAMSEY is reportedly close to joining Ligue 1 side OGC Nice on a free transfer.
Get French Football News claims the Wales star has an agreement in principle with the ambitious club.
Ramsey, 31, is a free agent after having his Juventus contract terminated.
And the ex-Arsenal star is now on verge of playing in yet another country as a move to Nice grows closer.
Ramsey is believed to have rejected an offer from MLS side Charlotte to remain in Europe.
The midfielder's most recent spate of action came during a six-month loan spell at Rangers.

But just days earlier he missed a penalty in the Europa League shoot-out defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.
And Gio van Bronckhorst opted against making Ramsey’s loan permanent.
Parent club Juventus were also unwilling to give the Serie A winner another shot following 70 appearances in two-and-a-half years.
