The player’s future has been uncertain this summer
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.
Emery has again made it clear that he wants Ramsey to stay at the club as he considers him as an important member of the squad.
“Football changes every day. It’s not easy. For that, I am thinking the match today first, then training tomorrow, then the match Saturday, with an important player here, he said as quoted by Sky Sports.
“Aaron is an important player for us, and the contract is one thing for the club and the player. For me, I want him to stay with us, to work with us, to give the team the big performance.
“I think he is going to stay here with us.”
