Ryan Giggs Urges Aaron Ramsey To Sort Out His Arsenal Future

Wales head coach Ryan Giggs has urged Aaron Ramsey to sort out his future with Arsenal at the earliest possibility. The 27-year-old has just 15 months left on his existing contract with the Gunners, and talks over an extension are yet to progress with the club presently focused on the future of Jack Wilshere.

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.

“He's at a good club. From a personal point of view when you're at a club you're used to it can help you. You know all the staff and the players. I was always happy; there was always a challenge at United so I never saw any reason to leave. I was happy playing my football. I never got bored or felt the need to go anywhere else.”

Ramsey has struggled with injuries over the course of his Gunners career, but he has managed to make an influential impact in every season, nevertheless. His most crucial contributions have come in the form of winning goals against Hull City and Chelsea in the 2014 and 2017 editions of the FA Cup, but aside from this, he has the ability to make nagging runs into the box, which often go unspotted by the opposition defence.

Right now, Arsenal’s main interests are on committing Wilshere to a new contract, considering his deal expires in less than two months’ time. The England international has already turned down a 25 per cent reduction on his current £110,000-a-week salary, and negotiations may prolong until the end of the season with contract chief Huss Fahmy reluctant to increase the offer.
