But he has now committed to a four-year contract with Juventus and will join the Italian champions at the end of the season.

The BBC had been reporting on the deal and it was confirmed on Monday that Ramsey will, in fact, be joining the Old Lady after 30 June 2019.

Ramsey's current Arsenal deal will expire at the end of the season and contract talks between the two parties broke down in the latter stages of 2018 as the Gunners were unprepared to meet the midfielder's demands.

Juventus said that the club are liable to pay 3.7 million euros ($4.1 million) by July 10 in the absence of a transfer fee.

The Welshman has now penned a pre-contract with Juventus and will link up with the club at the start of the next campaign. "I wanted to issue a personal statement for all the Arsenal fans who have been extremely loyal and supportive".

Ramsey, 28, joined Arsenal in 2008 from Cardiff City in £4.8-million deal.

"You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I've encountered during my time at the club. He has always been a consummate professional and will always have a special place in the hearts and memories of Arsenal fans around the world".

Ramsey - who has won three FA Cups at the London club - has passed a medical with the Turin club.
