Arsenal star Alex Iwobi is desperate for teammate Aaron Ramsey to stay at the club amidst rumours linking with a move away from the club.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria forward spoke about Ramsey and how the Arsenal players want him to stay with the Gunners in an interview monitored on popular English news outlet Daily Mirror.

Aaron Ramsey has less than a year left on his current Arsenal contract and that means he can start talking to foreign clubs about a free transfer move in the summer as from the New Year.

Arsenal and his representatives had been involved in talks over a new contract until last week when the Gunners withdrew their contract offer in the wake of the breakdown in talks between the two parties.

Contract talks broke down due to the financial demands on the part of the Welsh international midfielder.

Aaron Ramsey signed for Arsenal in the summer of 2008 for a transfer fee of around £4.8m from Welsh side Cardiff City.

Since signing over a decade ago, the 55-cap Welsh star has become a key player for Arsenal.

His major contributions at the club include netting the FA Cup final winning goal in 2014 against Championship side Hull City and in 2017 against London rivals Chelsea.
