Arsenal need to keep Aaron Ramsey at the north London side, according to Dennis Wise.

The Wales international’s representatives are in negotiations with the north London side over a new contract in the current Premier League season.

Ramsey has less than 12 months to run on his current deal with the Gunners to open up the possibility of a move in January or next summer.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a potential move to Chelsea FC as Maurizio Sarri looks to improve his midfield options.

Ramsey has started Arsenal’s two home games at the Emirates Stadium but the Welshman was on the bench for their 3-2 loss to Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

Former Chelsea FC star Wise believes the Arsenal star is a vital component of the Gunners team and needs to stay.

“Ramsey is a quality player. He has always scored goals,” Wise told Sky Sports’ The Debate. “He has been up and down with injuries. He is someone Arsenal need to keep.”

Ramsey has won three FA Cup titles during his Arsenal career so far after his move to Cardiff City in the 2008 summer transfer window.

The Gunners finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in Champions League for the second successive season.

Arsenal signed five players in the summer transfer window to bolster Emery’s squad.
