Aaron Ramsey is set to leave Juventus this month after Massimiliano Allegri confirmed the Welshman is an "outgoing player".

Ramsey has made just five appearances in all competitions for Juventus this season, playing only 97 minutes in Serie A.

The midfielder, who has struggled with injuries this campaign, is not part of Allegri's long-term plans with reports suggesting he could be set for a return to English football.

Ramsey has been linked with former club Arsenal, Everton and Newcastle while reports on Tuesday said Burnley had seen a formal approach for the 31-year-old turned down by the player.

Allegri said: "Ramsey, he returned today after we had given him a few days off to work, to train separately, in England. In any case, he's an outgoing player. "

Ramsey joined the Italian giants on a free transfer from Arsenal in July 2019 after signing a four-year deal worth £325,000 a week.

The former Cardiff City player has made 70 appearances in all competitions for The Old Lady, scoring six goals.

Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey thinks his club Juventus need to change his training regime to ensure he is fully fit after failing to complete 90 minutes for the Italian side so far this season

Sky Sports News' Kaveh Solhekol on The Transfer Show:

"I don't think he's got a future at Juventus. The manager Massimiliano Allegri was speaking today, he was asked about Aaron Ramsey and he was very dismissive. He basically said that Ramsey is a player who is on his way out of the club.

"He's barely played... he's played something like just over an hour this season and he's on big, big money. There are reports that he's earning £325,000 a week.

"He's earning that much because he moved to Juventus on a free transfer. It's a really important year for Ramsey because of Wales.

"They've got this really important World Cup qualifier coming up against Austria, and if they get through that they would face Scotland or Ukraine for a place in the World Cup so Ramsey needs to be playing regularly.

"Our reporter in Italy Gianluca Di Marzio was saying last night that Burnley had tried to sign Ramsey but it hadn't worked out, and he also said that Newcastle have tried to sign him but it looks like Ramsey could be coming back to the Premier League this month."

Morata to stay at Juve

Meanwhile, Allegri also confirmed Alvaro Morata will not leave the club despite interest from Barcelona.

The Spain striker, Allegri and officials from the club held talks following persistent rumours of Barca preparing to make an offer to Morata's parent club Atletico Madrid.

Allegri said: "Morata will not leave, he is a performance footballer. The problem with him is that he is given the wrong label.

"He is very important: I talked to him and I told him not to move from here. Case closed."

Juve have yet to decide whether they will take up the £29m (€35m) option to sign Morata permanently, and it will depend on how he performs in the latter half of the season.
