Reports continue to claim Chelsea want Aaron Ramsey

Reports continue to claim Chelsea want Aaron Ramsey

If the Welsh worldwide doesn't sign a new contract with the North London side, there will no shortage of clubs chasing his signature who is in his peak years.

The Wales global, who scored match-winning goals in both the 2014 and 2017 FA Cup finals, has started five of the Gunners' six Premier League games so far this season.

'The football career for the players is very short.

Speaking to reporters at his pre-match press conference, as reported by the London Evening Standard, Emery explained that in his eyes, every player is an important part of his squad.

They add Ramsey was chasing a contract worth £200,000-a-week - which would provide parity with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but still be some way below German ace Mesut Ozil.

"He doesn't hide. He's somebody that if they can get it going, I'm desperate for him to stay but I do understand that Arsenal cannot continue to let players dictate like they are now".

There have been several enquiries and even a £50 million offer from an unknown club for Ramsey, which was rejected by Arsenal in the summer.

With contract talks at the Emirates reportedly breaking down, Chelsea headed the betting back in the summer but it's now Milan who are most likely to make a move at 2/1.

"I think no [it won't change his performance]", he said. They are professional for 10-15 years, not more usually.

Ramsey will be free to speak to potential suitors about a move overseas in January should he wish to run down the remaining months of his deal at the club.

Emery, who has led Arsenal to six straight wins in all competitions, also suggested he would not be dropping Ramsey due to the questions over his future.

Arsenal are keen to earn a fee from the player's departure and are prepared to listen to offers for him during the January transfer window.
