Aaron Ramsey has entered the final 12 months of his contract and speculation is rising about his future.

The 27-year-old midfielder has been a key player for Arsenal over the last few seasons and would be a big loss if he was to leave.

With the Gunners looking to avoid a repeat of Jack Wilshere running down his contract, questions about the Welshman’s future were raised with Emery.

He replied: “This is one question for the player and for the club. In my opinion, I’ve said to Ivan [Gazidis], Raul [Sanllehi] and Sven [Mislintat] that I think he’s an important player for me.

“I’m very happy with him. For me, every day, every training session, he has the ambition I want.

“He’s working with a quality, the type of ability that I want. I want to work with him.”
