Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey has turned down the chance to join Burnley, according to reports in Italy.

Ramsey has made just three Serie A appearances this season and is set to leave Juventus this month, with head coach Massimiliano Allegri confirming the Wales international will be an "outgoing player".

Speaking on Wednesday, 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.”

Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims Burnley made an approach to sign Ramsey, which was rejected by the Welshman.

“Ramsey probably can come back to the Premier League,” Di Marzio told Sky Sports News.

“He had an official proposal from Burnley but he said no.

“He doesn’t want to play for Burnley, he wants to play for a more ambitious team in the Premier League.”

Newcastle, who are level on points with Burnley in the Premier League relegation zone, have also been linked with Ramsey.

Eddie Howe's side are likely to be able to offer Ramsey a significantly more lucrative contract than Burnley, with the club’s new owners prepared to invest heavily this month.

“Newcastle asked about him before Christmas,” added Di Marzio.

“So we’ll see if some Premier League teams want Ramsey. He would like to come back because now at Juventus he’s in a difficult situation.”

Ramsey first joined Juventus on a free transfer from Arsenal in July 2019, signing a four-year deal worth a reported £325,000 a week.

He has gone on to make 70 appearances in all competitions for the Italian giants, scoring six goals, but has found his first-team opportunities limited this season.
