Arsenal ‘positive’ of agreeing fresh contract with Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal are reportedly confident of sorting out a fresh contract with Aaron Ramseybefore the close of the summer transfer window. The Wales international has already been offered a significant rise on his current £100,000-a-week wages with new boss Unai Emery keen on building the squad around the Welshman.

According to The Telegraph, the Gunners’ hierarchy have already placed a contract renewal on the table and they are currently waiting for a reply from the 27-year-old. Should the response be negative, the north London club are likely to offload the Welshman during the summer as they are keen to avoid him from entering the final year of his contract.
Ramsey has enjoyed a hot-and-cold relationship with the club’s faithful over the past decade but during this period, he has also provided some wonderful moments including the FA Cup winning goals in 2014 and 2017. Meanwhile, the Welshman has also become the club’s highest scoring central midfielder in history and the majority of the supporters are now keen for him to stay.

As such, The Telegraph adds that there are positive vibes that the midfielder will eventually commit his future after he most recently spoke about the excitement of playing under Emery. Following the close of the campaign, Ramsey had been with Wales for an international friendly against Mexico, where he highlighted the ambition to work under the former Paris Saint-Germain.

Meanwhile, Arsenal don’t seem to have a similar control over the future of Jack Wilshere, who has just one month left on his contract. The Englishman has already dropped possible exit hints on social media of late and there are suggestions that he could head to Juventus on a free transfer this summer. The Bianconeri have offered a four-year deal to the Gunners graduate and he could be partnered alongside Emre Can at the heart of the club’s midfield.
