It's not all about international football, and Arsene Wenger is putting the building blocks in place for Arsenal’s long-term future—with Aaron Ramsey set for a new deal.
Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky committed to the Gunners recently by signing new deals, and the Mail’s Tom Bellwood claims Ramsey is set to follow suit.
The midfielder is currently on the sidelines on account of injury, but Bellwood has also revealed that the Welshman is set to haul himself out of the treatment room and aid Arsenal in their push for honours.
In his piece, Bellwood wrote:
Aaron Ramsey is set to hand Arsenal a double boost by returning to training on Thursday after agreeing a new £90,000-a-week contract.
The Welshman’s impending return comes as he prepares to sign a bumper new deal as a reward for his outstanding performances in the 15 months since penning his last agreement.
The 23-year-old has agreed the terms of an improved contract that will lift his salary to £90,000-a-week, bringing it in line with fellow British stars Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott. Ramsey’s current deal runs until 2018 and is worth £60,000-a-week.
