Aaron Ramsey has grown ‘frustrated’ with Arsenal fans amid contract talks

Arsenal Ramsey Transfer Unai Emery

Unai Emery’s arrival as Arsene Wenger’s replacement was meant to change things for the better at Arsenal, but the same problems remain.Defensively the Gunners are still poor – they were dreadful at the back against Manchester City and Chelsea – and in midfield Granit Xhaka somehow continues to start games.Behind the scenes there are unresolved issues, too, such as Aaron Ramsey’s future at the Emirates Stadium.Just like how Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez did this time last year, the Welshman has entered the final 12 months of his contract at Arsenal.Discussions are underway over a new deal but they have been for some time now and progress is very slow.
So what’s the problem? It’s reported that Ramsey is demanding over double his current wages of £110,000-per-week because of the contract Ozil signed in January.Ozil is now Arsenal’s top earner at £350,000-per-week and apparently Ramsey believes he should be paid something close to that after 10 years of service.

Time is of the essence for Emery to tie down the Welsh playmaker, but according to well-respected Arsenal reporter Charles Watts of Football.London, Ramsey has grown “frustrated”.And why? Because Arsenal fans are now viewing him as someone whose sole focus is money as a result of the way he’s being portrayed.”The noises coming out of Arsenal continue to suggest they are confident that they will get a deal done,” said Watts in a recent Q&A with fans.”But as far as I’m aware, an agreement is still not close and there is no announcement expected unless a sudden breakthrough happens.”I also understand that there is some frustration from Ramsey’s side of things as to how he is being viewed as the situation progresses.
