According to the Telegraph, Aaron Ramsey is close to agreeing a new Arsenal deal after positive talks with new coach Unai Emery.
The Welshman is thought to have been offered at least a four-year extension on his current contract, which is due to end next summer.
He’ll also pocket a significant pay rise that would put him in the same wage bracket as Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Ramsey signed for the Gunners from Cardiff in 2008 and has made more appearances in the first team and scored more goals for the club than anyone else in the squad.
News of a possible Ramsey deal comes hot off the heels of contract extensions for Granit Xhaka, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Mohamed Elneny.
With Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere leaving, Lucas Torreira looking like a done deal and links with Ever Banega growing stronger, the club could well have a new look midfield come the start of pre-season.
It’ll be interesting to see how Emery moulds them.
