Midfielder Ramsey unsure of Arsenal future

Cape Town - Aaron Ramsey says his agent is now in talks with Arsenal over a possible new deal at the Premier League club.

Arsenal will be out to avenge our frustrating 2-1 aggregate defeat to Atletico in the 2017/18 Europa League semi-final that saw us blow a great chance in the first leg to put one foot in the final. He's a very good person, a very good professional.

"Football changes every day". I think he continues here because it is a big project here and his commitment to Arsenal is very strong.

"As I said, it's better for him if the situation is resolved quicker, we will see".

Our first official pre-season game was a comprehensive 8-0 victory over Boreham Wood while we've also played a couple of behind closed doors matches at the training ground Crawley and Brentford.

The Czech shot-stopper, who is in a similar situation with one year remaining on his own contract, was asked about Ramsey's prospects and said: "That's a private matter for the club and the player".

Bernd Leno played the first half and looked confident and whilst he did concede a goal, this resulted more from Arsenal's defensive failings rather than poor goalkeeping.

However, his future at Emirates Stadium was believed to be unclear following the arrival of Emery as coach.

That has created a structure where Gazidis, Sanllehi and Mislintat work together with Emery on most key decisions - a major departure from the Wenger years, when the Frenchman had the final say on almost everything.

As well as a wage hike there is the added incentive that the 27-year-old midfielder is one of the contenders for the captaincy following Per Mertesacker's retirement and the long-term injury to Laurent Koscielny.

"He is starting today because his performances are good in each training session", said Emery. "I don't know what he's going to do because I only speak with him about the Arsenal project".
