Unai Emery has delivered positive news about Aaron Ramsey situation to remain at Arsenal.
Ramsey is the latest Arsenal player to let his contract run down to its final year without signing an extension, following the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez before him.
The Welshman skippered Arsenal in the pre-season penalty shoot-out defeat to Atletico Madrid and Emery believes he has the qualities to lead the team on the pitch.
Speaking about the captaincy, Emery said: “It’s not yet official, this decision, but I’ve said to you that I want five captains in the team.
“Then we will give the numbers for the first, second, third, fourth and fifth. Aaron has the potential to be captain.
“Football changes every day. It’s not easy, but it does change. I was thinking about the match today, then preparation for the match Saturday.
“I think Aaron is an important player for us. The contract is one thing for the club and then one thing for the player.
“I want him to stay with us, to work with us, to give the team big performances with his quality.
“I think he’s going to stay here with us.”
