Aaron Ramsey gave a clear indication of where his future lies in a recent interview after Wales’ recent game against Mexico in California.

When asked about Arsenal’s new boss and if he was looking forward to working with the Spaniard, Ramsey said;

"Of course. I haven't spoken to him at all yet, but I think it's an exciting time for the club. I can't wait to get back there now."

Ramsey is entering the final year on his contract with the Gunners, and speculation has been rife that the Welshman would be departing the underperforming club - with Barcelona and Manchester United reportedly keen to acquire the midfielder’s services.

Emery has reportedly highlighted the Wales man as one of the cornerstone’s of his vision for Arsenal, along with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. This, coupled with the rumours of the captain’s armband being awarded to Ramsey, could sway the Welshman into signing a new long term deal at the club.

Talks are apparently ongoing with representatives from both the club and the player. Ramsey is entering his peak years and his next long term contract will be his last major payday, so Arsenal and Raul Sanllehi need to be prepared to pay the player what his market value is - which is pretty high.

If Ramsey acquires the armband and stays fit, he could very well end up as a bona fide legend at the club - he has been at Arsenal for a decade already, having joined from Cardiff in 2008. Another deal would see his stay and appearances rank up there with the best.

This is by no means a done deal, but if Ramsey’s comments are anything to go by, it would seem one of our best players is happy to stay at the club, and that will be music to the ears of most of us Gooners.
