RAMSEY OFFERED NEW 5-YEAR DEAL BUT WILL BE SOLD IF HE FAILS TO SIGN
Aaron Ramsey is considering a new five-year contract offer from Arsenal as Head Coach Unay Emery meets with player in a bid to convince him to stay.
Midfielder Ramsey only has 12 months remaining on his current contract and he will be sold if he does not agree an extension.
But Emery is known to be keen to keep Ramsey at the club and make him one of his key players.
Arsenal are ready to offer Ramsey fondly called ”Rambo” by Arsenal Fans a significant raise to his £110,000-a-week wages, but the 27-year-old may want to consider his options before signing.
This is likely to be Ramsey’s last big contract and he wants to be sure that he will play a big part under Emery.
Given that Under Wenger he had a free role in Midfield allowing him to dove tail across the middle of the park. Ramsey would want to know how the new manager will want to play him.
The failure of Wales to qualify for this summer’s World Cup means Ramsey can hold personal talks with Emery in the near future.
Ramsey handed Arsenal fans encouragement that he will recommit his future to the club, following Emery’s appointment, by saying: “Of course. I haven’t spoken to him at all yet, but I think it’s an exciting time for the club. I can’t wait to get back there now.”
Ramsey was one of the more impressive players last season and to lose him will be a big loss to the Gunners.
