Unai Emery spoke to the press ahead of Saturday’s first pre-season fixture against Boreham Wood FC, and insisted that while Aaron Ramsey is an important part of his plans, it’s up to the club to secure his future.
The Welsh international is into the final 12 months of his deal – and we all know the rigmarole that surrounds that kind of situation – but the Spaniard is going to leave negotiations in the hands of Ivan Gazidis, Raul Sanllehi and Seven Mislintat.
“I’m very happy with him,” Emery said of the 27 year old. “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.”
And asked about his contract, he continued, “It’s a question for the player and for the club. In my opinion, I’ve said to Ivan, Raul and Sven that I think he’s an important player for me.”
Ramsey has been made significant offers already, and Arseblog News understands that improved terms will be presented to Ramsey and his agent in an attempt to secure his signature.
Quite what will happen if those aren’t deemed acceptable remains to be seen, but then that’s a problem for Ivan, Raul and Sven to sort out.
