Aaron Ramsey will sign contract extension on one condition

The midfielder has entered the final 12 months of his current deal

Aaron Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff for a reported fee of £4.8 million in 2008. He has been a mainstay in the midfield since joining them, scoring 58 goals in 327 appearances in all competitions.

The 27 year old was a regular last season for the Gunners, scoring 12 goals and assisting 9 in 36 appearances in all competitions. But the club finished sixth in the Premier League and will miss the Champions League in this season.

The Welsh midfielder has entered the final of 12 months of his current deal and yet to commit himself to a long term agreement. Talks have been going on with his representative for a 4 or 5 year contract over the past few months that have yet to result in agreement.

His future at the club following Arsene Wenger’s departure has been widely speculated on and has generated interest from Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona and Lazio among other clubs. Chinese Super League clubs are keen on him.

Premier League giants new manager Unai Emery even insisted before the start of the current campaign the he sees the Wales International as a key part of his future plans and has urged the club to offer him a new contract. But also admitted the decision will solely depend on the club.

However, the player has featured in both the club’s Premier League fixtures against Manchester City and Chelsea, losing both of them as they are still waiting for first points this season.

Ramsey will not commit his future to Arsenal without assurances that he will keep his place in Emery’s team, The Sun reports.

His omission from the starting XI for last week’s defeat to the Blues has left the Welshman concerned over his role in the team.
