Theo Walcott believes Aaron Ramsey would “love” the chance to return to Arsenal after struggling since leaving for Juventus.

The Welsh midfielder starred for his country in World Cup qualification this month, scoring twice past Belarus before helping his country secure a play-off spot by drawing 1-1 with Belgium.

However he has played only five times for Juventus this campaign and last started for the Serie A giants on the opening day of the season. Talk of a move away has been rife and Walcott, who spent a decade with Ramsey in the Arsenal team, says a North London reunion could be on the cards.

Walcott told talkSPORT: “It would be lovely, it would be fantastic for him to come back to the Premier League.

“I feel like he would want to, definitely, and something in my head tells me he would love to come back to Arsenal.

“It’s one of those things - he’s at Juventus, he played very well for Wales last night which is really good to see, a lot of people have been on his back in Italy.

“For me, he’s a leader, he’s a workhorse. He still plays for his country, he’s got so many caps. It would be great for him to come back to the Premier League.”

Tuesday’s draw means Wales will be seeded in the play-offs next year, giving them the right to host their semi-final in Cardiff while avoiding Italy or Portugal until a potential final.

Ramsey, 30, paid tribute to the squad and fans after another memorable night in the Welsh capital.

“It’s massive. Full credit to the boys, they put in a massive shift again against top opposition,” he stated. “We always believed we could get a result, especially with our fans behind us. It’s another good night for us.

“We build our foundations on everybody putting in a shift for each other, putting their bodies on the line, and we managed to do that again tonight.

“There’s some big, big teams still in it but it was so important that we had a home tie. You could see the atmosphere tonight – it’s a special place to come and play. Hopefully that will give us an extra edge in that first play-off.”
