Aaron Ramsey to become the sixth British player at the Old Lady
- Arsenal star have allegedly agreed a five-year deal to move to Juve in the summer
- John Charles, Liam Brady, Ian Rush and other prominent Britsih and Irish players plied their trade there
- Sportsmail look at how the players from Misty Albion have been faring at Turin so far
Aaron Ramsey have agreed a 5-year deal with Juve this Wednesday with his medical set to take place on Saturday. The Welsh international will now become the sixth British and Irish player to sign for the Old Lady.
Ramsey's countrymen have enjoyed a fair share of success and failure in Italy, with one from the pack establishing himself as the greatest player in the club's history.
So, Sportsmail decided to take a look at the Five who came before and what they have achieved in the famous Black-and-White:
William Johnny Jordan (1948-49)
William Johnny Jordan was born in Bromley and came through Bromley and Grays Athletic before having a spell on West Ham's books just after the war.
He was then offered his first professional deal by Spurs after a trial. He scored twice on his debut against Sheffield Wednesday after penning the contract in August 1947.
However, after a season in which he scored 10 goals in 24 Division Two games, Juventus came in for Jordan with an offer Spurs could not refuse. He moved there in 1948.
They took him to Turin, where he struggled to settle.
The centre forward scored just five times in 20 matches during his time in Italy. He returned to England after a season, joining Birmingham City.
John Charles (1957-62)
If Ramsey wants an example to follow, it's his fellow Welshman John Charles. Arguably the greatest British footballer of all time and one of Juventus' greatest imports. Also earned the nickname Il Gigante Buono, or the Gentle Giant, during his time at Juventus.
Charles stood at 6'2", a huge height for the time, and featured at both centre-forward and centre-half while breaking through at Leeds United. Scored 42 goals in 39 appearances during the 1953-54 season for Leeds.
Juventus offered a then-British record £65,000 for him in August 1957. Charles moved to Turin, scoring match-winning goals in his first three matches. He ended the campaign as Serie A's top scorer and won the player of the season award.
Charles ended up winning the Scudetto three times in five years, scored 108 goals in 155 matches and placed third in the 1959 Ballon d'Or. Was voted their greatest ever foreign player by Juventus fans in 1997.
Liam Brady (1980-82)
Brady established himself at Arsenal and helped them reach the Cup Winners' Cup final during the 1979-80 season. Amid suggestions he was looking for a new challenge, Brady impressed when up against Juventus in the semi-final of that competition.
That convinced them to spend just over £500,000 on the midfielder, making him the first foreign player to join Juventus since overseas signings were allowed again in 1980.
He had a successful spell in Turin, winning Serie A in both of his seasons at the club. Brady also scored the penalty that won them the title in 1982, when they took on Catanzaro. It was the only goal of the crucial game.
The arrival of Michel Platini meant that he was surplus to requirements, and he joined Sampdoria before playing for Inter Milan and Ascoli.
Ian Rush (1986-88 (spent the first season on loan at Liverpool))
Ian Rush's spell at Juventus has been summed up with the quote: 'It's like living in a foreign country'. He has moved to clarify that both the statement and sentiment were false. 'I was homesick at times, but it is one of the best things I've done in my life', he said in 2005.
Rush earned his move after a brilliant period at Liverpool, scoring 33 goals in 1985-86 as they won the league and FA Cup. He then signed for Juventus in a £3.2million deal but remained at Liverpool on loan, scoring a further 30 goals that season to justify the move.
However, he was considerably less successful in Turin than his compatriot Charles. Rush struggled at Juventus. He did not deal well with the tighter defences in Italy and scored just eight goals in his 29 games. After one season, he was sold back to Liverpool for £2.7m.
David Platt (1992-93)
David Platt moved to Italy after an ultra-successful spell at Aston Villa, but it was not Juventus that he initially joined. Instead, he moved to Bari for £5.5m. While there, Roberto Mancini begged him to come to Sampdoria.
He scored 11 goals in 29 games for Bari — which was considered an impressive tally for a midfielder. But Bari went down and Juventus came in for him. They paid £6.5m to sign him.
But Platt struggled for a place in the first-team due to the sheer number of stars in the squad. He played just 16 games, scoring three goals, although he was allowed to lift the UEFA Cup after not featuring in the final.
Eventually, Mancini, a star player for Sampdoria, not their manager, convinced his club to sign him and in the summer of 1993 Platt moved there.
