Following the contract situation with Aaron Ramsey, club manager Unai Emery has urged the star to focus on playing football and showing off the good attitude he has been displaying all through.
Ramsey has played a significant role in the team following Arsenal’s exceptional form, which now has the club on an 11-match winning streak. Gunners around the world believe the club may have a shot at the title this season. Emery, however, is hoping to increase this streak as the team face Blackpool tomorrow at home.

Rumours have been on about the agreement to have collapsed with the Wales international, who could be a free agent next summer should Arsenal fail to offer a high-wage contract extension for Aaron Ramsey to be the midfielder on a similar wage band as Mesut Özil is on. The 27-year-old midfielder captained his club to a 1-0 narrow win against Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon on Thursday in a Europa League game.
Speaking about his Welsh star, Unai Emery said via Goal:
“I want my focus and his focus to be on the team, it’s true that each player has an individual situation to speak about with the club, but these need to be apart from their performance with the team.
“For myself and Aaron, our conversations have been very clear. He’s played with commitment, with the focus on helping the team. I was very happy without how he played against Sporting, both individually and collectively.
“I want him to do the same for Sunday and for these forthcoming matches. He should focus on the team and being together in this situation and then we’ll see what happens.
“Aaron and the club and talk and he can think about his contract with the club. Maybe he’ll think about the possibility that he won’t continue here, but for me and for the team, it’s about being together and getting better in each training session.”
