AARON RAMSEY can become an Arsenal great says Martin Keown.
The midfielder was in dazzling form yesterday as the Gunners battered Fulham 5-1.
Ramsey has been a key player for Arsenal in recent years and is their longest-serving player.
He was widely expected to sign a new contract after lengthy negotiations.
But last month it was revealed that the north Londoners had rescinded their offer to the 27-year-old.
Ramsey has been linked with Manchester United and Juventus.
Keown, however, has praised the Wales international’s attitude and urged the two parties to reach an agreement.
He told The Daily Mail: “Ramsey — who is yet to sign a new contract — could have sulked after being named as a substitute but he is not that sort of player.
“He entered the fray hungry to make sure Arsenal won this match.
“When you are building something, it is crucial that you hold on to your identity.
“This is a player who has spent a decade with Arsenal, the scorer of winning goals in two FA Cup finals.
“New managers need players like Ramsey who acutely understand the demands of playing for their football club.
“He is a role model in the way he works, trains and plays with such drive.
“Should he see out his career at the Emirates, Ramsey will go down as an Arsenal great.
