Arsenal manager Unai Emery was coy when quizzed about Aaron Ramsey’s ongoing contractual situation at the club.
Emery, as quoted by Sky Sports, spoke to the media ahead of his side’s Premier League fixture against Leicester City on Monday night and was keen to only discuss the fixture.
Ramsey’s predicament at Arsenal has been well documented in recent times, with the player’s contract set to reach its expiry date at the end of the season.
This will allow the Wales international to sign a pre-contract agreement with European clubs in January if he is not sold to another club, or move on for free next summer.
Emery looked to avoid discussing Ramsey’s situation at the Emirates, insisting that the January transfer window is still “very far” away from his thoughts.
For me January is very far, I’m thinking Monday first and I want every player staying with the mentality and the preparation for playing together to win.
My focus is every single match. The future is tomorrow, no more. I want the mentality for the next match, individual things are not for me to speak on now.
Arsenal will be looking to continue their impressive early-season form on Monday against Leicester as they look to extend their winning streak to 10 games in all competitions.
