According to Martin Keown he believes unsettled Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey could end up signing a new contract with the club.

The Welsh man was in sensational on Sunday as the Gunners battered Fulham 5-1.

The former Cardiff man has been a key player for Arsenal in recent years and is their longest-serving player.

Ramsey was widely expected to sign a new contract after lengthy negotiations.

But last month it was revealed that the north Londoners had rescinded their offer to the 27-year-old.

Keown, however, has praised the Wales international’s attitude and urged the two parties to reach an agreement.

He told The Daily Mail: “Ramsey — who is yet to sign a new contract — could have sulked after being named as a substitute but he is not that sort of player.

“He entered the fray hungry to make sure Arsenal won this match.

“When you are building something, it is crucial that you hold on to your identity.

“This is a player who has spent a decade with Arsenal, the scorer of winning goals in two FA Cup finals.

“New managers need players like Ramsey who acutely understand the demands of playing for their football club.

“He is a role model in the way he works, trains and plays with such drive.

“Should he see out his career at the Emirates, Ramsey will go down as an Arsenal great.

“I understand why he would want to earn the same as the club’s recent acquisitions.

“At 27, this could be his last big contract and it is important for him that he makes the right decision.

“But think of Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Samir Nasri.

“Too often Arsenal have developed promising players only to sell them.

“I would be immensely disappointed if Ramsey is allowed to leave.”
