There has been many Arsenal rumours discussing whether Aaron Ramsey could be sold this summer as there has still no progress on his contract extension talks, in fact he agent recently revealed that the negotiations hadn’t even started.
But now that we have the new manager in place the talks can now begin in earnest, and after the Welshman’s excellent form last season there are not many Gooners that would be happy to see him leave.
As soon as Emery was announced as the new coach SkySports revealed that the Spaniard wanted Ramsey to be central to his new vision of the team, and now Ramsey seems to be just as keen be part of his revolution at the Emirates. When asked yesterday if he was looking forward to working with Emery, Ramsey replied: “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.”
That sounds very positive from Ramsey and I am sure the club will come to an agreement with him, although there have been rumours about him wanting a mouth-watering pay-rise. One of the main bugbears for Arsenal fans about Ramsey is the amount of time he spends on the treatment table, and Aaron revealed that he had picked up another knock in last night’s 0-0 draw with Mexico. He said: “I rolled my ankle but I’d taken the armband from Ash and I thought I had to stay on and do my bit for the team,”
“It wasn’t the best surface in the world and my ankle is a bit sore.
“Hopefully there will be no lasting damage and it will settle down over the next few days.”
He will have ample time to recover over the summer as Wales did not quite make the cut for the World Cup, so he will also have lots of time to sit down with the new Gunners team and agree a new contract. Do we all want him to stay?
