Ramsey and Arsenal’s other players also out of contract in 2019

first_img Arsenal fans could be deprived of a Ramsey/Torreira partnership Contract info from Nacho Monreal“He is absolutely vital for us because he can play centre back in the three, he can play full-back in the four. It gives me many options to choose the tactics of the way we play, before the game. He is confident, he has good timing and he is an intelligent player and a very professional player,” Arsene Wenger said in January. Clearly he is a fan and Monreal is also very popular among supporters, who voted him second, behind Ramsey, in the club’s Player of the Season award. In 2017, Monreal talked about how happy he was at the club. “I have two more years left on my contract, with an optional third, and the idea is to stay here,” he explained. Despite being linked with Barcelona, the player revealed he is currently trying to sort a new deal to stay in north London. Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Monreal is Arsenal’s most senior left-back Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Petr CechPetr Cech has been Arsenal’s no.1 since he swapped Stamford Bridge for the Emirates in 2015, but the arrival of Bernd Leno earlier in the summer naturally cast doubt on his future. The 36-year-old explained he didn’t want to go anywhere, though, and turned down interest from Napoli, who reportedly wanted him on loan. “My future is at Arsenal and I do not think about changing clubs,” he said. “I still have a year of my contract with Arsenal, the only thing I want to think about is fighting for a starting position.” David Ospina has since joined Napoli on loan and Cech has kept a frustrated Bernd Leno out of the team.

Here, looks at four first team players whose contracts expire in 2019, though Stephan Lichsteiner, who signed a one-year deal when he joined earlier in the summer, has been left off the list.Aaron RamseyThis is a key one. Ramsey, the goal scoring hero of Arsenal’s 2014 and 2017 FA Cup final wins, was said to be keen to remain and work with new manager Unai Emery. Following Jack Wilshere’s exit, Gooners were probably hoping to see the 27-year-old Ramsey partner summer signing Lucas Torreira in a new look Arsenal midfield, but it appears talks have broken down. During the summer transfer window, Chelsea were linked with him, and talkSPORT’s Adrian Durham believes the club would be making a huge mistake if he was allowed to go. Breakfast Show co-host Ally McCoist thinks the player could play ‘anywhere’ and would be suited to Spain and Italy.

He might not be a goalscorer like Harry Kane but for England he can perfectly play with Kane because he can play on the flanks.” It will be interesting to see if Unai Emery feels the same because right now the 27-year-old Welbeck is behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in the queue for starting places. He hasn’t started a Premier League game this term, but played 90 minutes in both the 4-2 Europa League win against Vorskla and the 3-1 Carabao Cup triumph over Brentford where he scored twice.
