Unai Emery has completed plenty of work in the market for Arsenal this summer, landing five new players, but faces a fight to retain the services of a fan favourite.

Aaron Ramsey has entered the final 12 months of his contract at the Emirates Stadium, raising fears that he could run down his deal in a similar fashion to Alexis Sanchez – who left for Manchester United in January.

Arsenal are desperate for the Wales international to agree to new terms but the 27-year-old admitted uncertainty on his future this week, which led to concern amongst the fans that the two-time FA Cup final goalscorer would seek an exit.

However, speaking after the club’s pre-season clash with Atletico Madrid in Singapore, Emery expressed confidence that Ramsey would sign a new deal. In a post-match press conference, he said:

“I think Aaron is an important player for us. The contract is one thing for the club and then one thing for the player. I want him to stay with us, to work with us, to give the team big performances with his quality. I think he’s going to stay here with us.”
