Aaron Ramsey’s involvement in Wales’ upcoming 2022 World Cup qualifiers is in doubt after Juventus confirmed the midfielder has suffered a thigh injury.
Earlier on Tuesday, Rob Page named Ramsey in his 27-man squad for a friendly against Finland (September 1) and World Cup qualifiers against Belarus (September 5), and Estonia September 8
But Juventus later said the 30-year-old suffered an adductor problem in their 2-2 draw with Udinese on Sunday and will undergo further medical examinations on his thigh in 10 days’ time, which could impact whether the midfielder features for Wales in their upcoming games.
Ramsey was brought off after 60 minutes in Juve’s first game of the season and replaced by Italy captain Giorgio Chiellini.
A short statement from the Serie A club read: “Due to a muscular problem reported at the end of the match played against Udinese, Aaron Ramsey underwent diagnostic tests at J|Medical this morning, which revealed a low-grade injury to the adductor major muscle of the right thigh.
“In 10 days he will undergo new exams in order to precisely define the recovery time.”
The Wales international starred for his country at Euro 2020 as they reached the round-of-16 and he managed five assists and two goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for Juve last season, despite being overlooked by Massimiliano Allegri’s predecessor Andrea Pirlo during the latter half of the campaign.
