According to Parlor, the player knows he will be signing his last contract with the club, therefore, he wants to employ ‘Mesut Ozil’s mercenary tactics’ so as to get a big-money bid.
Parlor advised the Gunners to retain the Welshman because he is an important figure in Unai Emery’s team. Since Wilshere’s departure, the Welshman became the longest player in the team and the Gunners can’t afford to lose another homegrown player.
“He’s been there a long time, he does love the club, he does his best he can for the club and he scores some vital goals in cup competitions.” he said
It was reported that Chelsea, Barcelona, Manchester United and Liverpool were interested in his signature this summer as a result of his contract status.
Ramsey hasn’t been lively since the start of the season, though, he has featured in all the games played by the club.

West Ham Complete €27m Transfer For Arsenal Target
Premier League club West Ham United have sealed the transfer of highly rated Spanish international Pablo Fornals.

Pablo Fornals was previously a transfer target for the Gunners who were strongly linked with the Spaniard during the winter transfer window earlier this year.
Arsenal were unable to make a concrete move for Pablo Fornals in January due to a lack of funds and they ended up with Denis Suarez who has since gone back to parent club Barcelona after his loan spell in North London.
Pablo Fornals has signed a five-year contract with West Ham United who have finally made a breakthrough in their quest to sign a new midfielder.
The Hammers initially wanted Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes only for them to be rebuffed by the Spanish champions.
They made two separate bids of £18m and £20m for Portuguese international Andre Gomes but Barcelona were holding out for £25m for the player who impressed a great deal while he was on loan at fellow Premier League club Everton.
The Toffees are still pursuing a permanent move for Andre Gomes amidst the interest from the likes of reigning European champions Liverpool and some Spanish clubs.
