Contract update: Aaron Ramsey close to Arsenal extension

Arsenal are reportedly close to finding a breakthrough with Aaron Ramsey with regards to a new contract. The Wales international has generated uncertainty over his future with his deal expiring next summer but the Gunners appear close to ending any lingering doubts over his situation.

According to The Guardian, the north London outfit are edging nearer to committing Ramsey to a fresh deal, although the focus on deadline day could remain on offloading the fringe players.

The Capital outfit have already permitted Lucas Perez to undergo a medical ahead of his proposed move to West Ham United and the Spaniard could be followed by Danny Welbeck and David Ospina through the exit door.

Welbeck only recently returned to Gunners’ training after his World Cup exploits but he has supposedly been told that he has no future with the club. Everton, Southampton and West Ham United are among the sides vying for his signature.

On the other hand, Ospina is supposedly in advanced talks with Turkish giants Besiktas, who are prepared to offer him the number one role after the recent departure of Fabri to Premier League side Fulham.

Meanwhile, coming back to Ramsey, Arsenal have recently made an Instagram post where Welshman is seen posing to the cameras and this could be a subtle hint that the midfielder may have already finalised a contract extension.
