Arsene Wenger says Aaron Ramsey will be an 'interesting addition' to Juventus and a 'loss' for Arsenal.

Aaron Ramsey’s unique style in midfield will be missed at Arsenal, according to former manager Arsene Wenger.

The 28-year-old will join Juventus on a free transfer in the summer after signing a pre-contract agreement with the Serie A champions, moving when his existing deal at the Emirates expires on July 1.

Ramsey played under Wenger for 10 years and the pair enjoyed relative success, lifting the FA Cup three times, with Ramsey twice scoring the winning goal.

Speaking at the Laureus Sport for Good presentation, Wenger said: "It will be a loss for Arsenal. I must say it will be an interesting move for Ramsey.

"He is a player who is great going forward. His main quality is he can keep the final ball and he makes interesting runs from deep.
