One of the most pressing issues that Arsenal have to deal with this season is the contract negotiation of Aaron Ramsey.
The midfielder’s contract gets over at the end of the upcoming season so, it is essential that the Gunners find a solution for it right now. Now, reports from the Daily Star suggest that in order to tie down the Welshman to a new deal, Arsenal are willing to offer a five-year extension.
It has to be noted that no agreement has been reached as of now as the negotiations between the player and the club are expected to go on a little bit longer.
“I’m very happy with him. 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.”
To their credit, Arsenal have been a little proactive in dealing with the issues that exist in the midfield. They have signed two players in Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi. It must be mentioned that this transfer window has also seen two players in the form of Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere leave the club.
So, if they do not solve this issue quickly, the Gunners will end up finding themselves in a very precarious position and that is something that they will look to avoid.
It goes without saying that Ramsey is a crucial member of the squad and it is essential for the club to extend his contract. By some chance if he does leave, a replacement has to be brought in at the earliest. And given how close we are to the end of the window, decision have to be made soon.
