Aaron Ramsey will face difficulty in securing a move away from Juventus this summer despite talk of a potential return to Arsenal, according to reports.
Ramsey has spent the last two years at Juve after joining the Italian giants upon the expiry of his Gunners contract in 2019.
The Wales midfielder has struggled to hold down a regular starting place in Turin amid fitness problems and dips in form, meaning he is being linked with a move away in the summer transfer window.
A return to Arsenal has been mooted, with certain reports suggesting Juve will target a swap deal that would see Thomas Partey head in the opposite direction.
However, Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, speaking on Sky Sports News, has claimed it will be "difficult" for Ramsey to leave Juve because of his hefty salary.
The 30-year-old reportedly rakes in around £130,000 per week at the club, which will be difficult for a potential suitor to match amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Handing Ramsey a £6million-a-year contract would also represent a risk after his injury-plagued season, and with his 31st birthday to come in December.
Former Arsenal ace Ray Parlour understands that it would be a risk to bring him back to the Emirates, but also points out that he is a "top, top midfielder" when fully fit.
“He’s had a really poor season at Juventus, his injury list has grown, it is a massive gamble. He would have to take a big pay cut," Parlour said on talkSPORT.
“I’m sure lots of Premier League clubs would take him back. Maybe he will stay another year, or he’s not part of the plans and he will move.
