It seems Aaron Ramsey is on the verge of leaving Arsenal for Juventus this summer.

Disagreements over a potential contract extension this season has led to the Welshman seeking new suitors and a number of European clubs have expressed an interest in his signature.

Juventus had been linked to Ramsey for some time and reports from Sky Sports Italy suggested that the Arsenal man had agreed to a contract with the Italian champions.

It has been rumoured that Ramsey will complete his medical on Sunday, before dedicating the remainder of the season to Arsenal's charge for the Premier League top four.

However, figures like Guillem Balague have warned that the move might not be as clearcut as some are suggesting with Ramsey still remaining to hear out alternative offers.

The Sky Sports pundit tweeted on Thursday: "Despite reports from Italy, Ramsey has not taken a decision about his future.

"He knows what Juve offer (probably the most interesting offer so far) but before he decides he wants to meet all clubs that want him, including 2 Spanish ones."

Interesting stuff, but with Juventus remaining the most appetising prospect and some reports expressing borderline certainty, it's no surprise that fans are already imagining Ramsey in Italy.

How will Juve line up with Ramsey?

It will certainly take some getting use to after seeing Ramsey in an Arsenal shirt for a decade, but the 28-year-old's potential arrival is an exciting prospect for the Juventus midfield.

Breaking into the starting XI won't be easy and there's plenty of top midfielders in Turin, yet that's exactly why the transfer would be so intriguing.

And that considered - as proposed by Corriere dello Sport - there are a number of exciting ways Juventus can line-up with Ramsey at their disposal.

So, in light of the reported agreement, here are three of the most realistic and promising stystsems Juventus could call upon:

4-1-2-1-2

Arsenal fans know better than anyone else that Ramsey can be a real threat in front of goal if he's given the opportunities and he has the chance to shine as an attacking midfielder in Serie A.

Although dislodging Paulo Dybala from the team would be no easy task, his defensive duties would be covered by Blaise Matuidi and he would be able to supply ammunition for Cristiano Ronaldo.

4-2-3-1

However, the 4-1-2-1-2 formation isn't the only system that allows Ramsey to thrive behind the strikers and this alternative line-up would allow Ronaldo and Douglas Costa to man the flanks.

As well as establishing himself as a playmaker to Mario Mandzukic, he would be able to spray long passes out wide and make late runs into the box to provide goals from crosses.

4-3-2-1

The Italian media also reckon that Ramsey could play as far forward as Dybala, slotting into the left-wide position while Miralem Pjanic fills in as the main creator from slightly deeper in the midfield.

It might seem an unlikely prospect, but Ramsey does have experience out wide from the earlier years of his Arsenal career and could wander into more central areas when Alex Sandro pushes forward.
