Arsenal star has urged his teammate to stay at the club this summer

The player has been linked with a summer exit

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 the upcoming season.

The Welsh midfielder has entered the final year of his contract 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 been linked with a summer move.

Premier League giants new manager Unai Emery even insisted 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 solely depends on the club.

He even admitted earlier this week he is uncertain about his contract, with his agent locked in negotiations over a new deal.

Ramsey’s club teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan has urged him to sign a new contract at the club as the German midfielder believes he has what it takes to become a club legend.

“I think he has already been at this club for 10 years if I am not wrong,” Mkhitaryan told reporters, as quoted by sportsmole following his side’s penalty shootout defeat to Atletico Madrid.

“And it seems that he became a symbol for this club and I will be very happy for him if he is going to sign a new contract because he has a history of Arsenal already.

“I hope he can become a legend for Arsenal after a few years.”
