Arsenal have offered Aaron Ramsey a new contract.
The midfielder, who has entered the last 12 months of his current deal could leave the club on a free next summer should he fail sign on the dotted line.
Ramsey has been linked with a move away from the Emirates as early as this transfer window, but BBC Sport claim Arsenal are keen to see the Welshman remain in north London.
The 27 year-old joined the Gunners in 2008 from hometown club Cardiff City and has scored 36 goals in 234 Premier League appearances.
Ramsey is the club’s current leading goalscorer, while he’s also been tipped to replace Laurent Koscielny as Gunners captain.
The former Cardiff City man was awarded Arsenal’s player of the season after netting 11 goals in 32 appearances for the club last time out.
Following his £4.8m move from the Bluebirds in 2008, Ramsey has gone on to lift the FA Cup three times, twice scoring the match-winning goal at Wembley.
