Many Arsenal fans have wished for one player to sign a contract at the Emirates and express his desire to work with the new manager, Unai Emery. You may think it’s a new player to put on the red of Arsenal however it is already one of our own.
The recipient of the player of the season award, Aaron Ramsey, has dropped his biggest hint yet that he will be putting pen to paper and signing a new contract.
The Welsh midfielder who is currently earns £110,000-a-week at Arsenal, has one year left to run on his contract with many previously fearing him and Jack Wilshere will leave with the club for free when their contracts expire.
When asked if he was looking forward to working with Emery, Ramsey replied after the Wales fixture against Mexico. According to BBC, he said:
‘Of course. I haven’t spoken to him at all yet, but I think it’s an exciting time for the club.
You may not think too much of that quote but he followed up with his excitement of re-joining the club for pre-season: ‘I can’t wait to get back there now.’
Still no confirmation from the number eight extending his stay, however, The Telegraph is reporting that the club has offered Ramsey a new five-year contract.
The club is hoping the confirmation comes soon and they can avoid experiencing a situation like last year, where Alexis Sanchez moved to Manchester United on the cheap and Mesut Ozil bargained himself a new wage packet.
Should he extend his contract then a certain Spanish manager will be jumping for joy in his new surroundings. Unai Emery has expressed his desire to build the team around the 27-year-old and striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The news is likely to play in the midfielder’s favour as he demands to be put in the same wage bracket as the striker and new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan earning closer to the £200,000-a-week mark. We are likely to see a further indication in the coming weeks, whether Ramsey will be a star in North London for many years to come.
