Unai Emery wants Arsenal to extend Aaron Ramsey’s contract

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has indicated that Aaron Ramsey remains an important player for him next season and he is eager for the club’s hierarchy to sort out his future. The Wales international is presently the Gunners’ longest-serving player after having spent over a decade but his future remains uncertain with his contract expiring in 12 months’ time.

Speaking in a news conference, Emery highlighted the importance of the Welshman to his plans and admitted that he has been impressed with the midfielder’s application in training, he said: “This is one question for the player and for the club. In my opinion, I’ve said to Ivan [Gazidis], Raul [Sanllehi] and Sven [Mislintat] that I think he’s an important player for me. I’m very happy with him. For me, every day, every training session, he has the ambition I want. He’s working with a quality, the type of ability that I want. I want to work with him.”

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.

Arsene Wenger admits he won’t manage another English club

Arsene Wenger has admitted that he would not consider another managerial job in England as it could be a sense of betrayal to his former club Arsenal. The Frenchman ended his 22-year association with the Gunners last week after he oversaw a 1-0 triumph over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Since then, the Frenchman has been answering questions related to his long-standing Gunners career and when asked about the prospect of managing another English outfit, he said: “It will be very difficult for me [without Arsenal. At the moment if I want to continue to work, I think I have to move out of the country, because my gut feeling at the moment is that I would feel I would betray my club by staying in England. People might feel that I've betrayed what I've built here. That is the problem I face at the moment. My club is here, my heart is here and will be forever. As I said in my speech on the pitch after the Burnley game, I'm a fan above all.”

Aaron Ramsey Backs Mikel Arteta To Succeed As A Manager

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes former Gunners Mikel Arteta has the credential to succeed as a fantastic manager in the future. The Spaniard is currently one of the co-assistants of manager Pep Guardiola and together they have witnessed Manchester City secure the Premier League title this season.

In a report covered by The Star, Ramsey was quizzed about Arteta’s chances of becoming a future head coach to which he replied: “Mikel was a fantastic player for Arsenal and a great captain. He’s been under Pep Guardiola there, he was always interested even when he was playing here in going into a coaching role one day, I’m sure he’s learning a lot about the game and especially the way Man City have been playing. They’ve done fantastically well, so I’m sure that one day when the time is right, he’ll be a fantastic manager.”

Ramsey was not picked by Wales for the friendlies against China and Uruguay due to a minor injury, and during a news conference, Giggs advised the midfielder to stay put with the Gunners, he said: “I hope Aaron sorts it out sooner rather than later. Any player having talks with contracts you want it sorted out as quickly as possible.

Arsene Wenger provides worrying fitness update on Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that Aaron Ramsey may not be fit enough for the upcoming games against Ostersund and Manchester City.

Arsenal boss hits back at Thierry Henry over Alexis Sanchez dig

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hit back at Thierry Henry for the comments made in the aftermath of the Gunners' 3-2 win over Crystal Palace. Henry had claimed that there had been a split within the Gunners squad after a section of the players refused to celebrate alongside Alexis Sanchez for his first goal.

However, in the following game, the entire team went to celebrate Sanchez's contribution after his free-kick deflected off James McClean to find the West Bromwich Albion goal. The match eventually ended 1-1 owing to a controversial penalty for the Baggies at the end, and Wenger took time to indirectly criticise Henry for his thought.

Is Alexis Sanchez committed to Arsenal?

Alexis endured a frustrating night at the office on Sunday, after the 3-1 defeat to Manchester city away from home. He played as a No. 9, a position at which he has recently proven to be ineffective. Sanchez lost possession of the ball eleven times and was trapped offside quite often during the match.

This was one of his worst performances in recent times. We are used to seeing him taking out his frustrations on fellow teammates on the pitch. There was one such incident with fellow teammate Aaron Ramsey in the match against Manchester City.

Thierry Henry or Patrick Vieira as potential successors to Wenger

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour feels the Gunners should have a succession plan in place once Arsene Wenger calls quits on his managerial career. The Frenchman extended his contract by a further two years earlier in the summer despite protests from a section of fans for him to step down.

Speaking to AskFans, Parlour insists that the club should look at former players including Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira if they are to pick a potential successor for Wenger. Vieira has already earned valuable managerial experience with Manchester City's sister club New York City FC but Parlour is hoping that either he or his compatriot Henry gets the opportunity to manage the Gunners.
