Arsenal must improve to challenge Premier League's top teams - Unai Emery

Arsenal news Per Mertesacker

"Everything has been going great with the club", said Ramsey last week "We thought we were in a position where we had agreed a deal but that's no longer the case".

A contract impasse is likely to see the 27-year-old leave in the summer - while the club may look to cash in on Ramsey during the January transfer window.

"We need to improve because for example the match against Fulham was a very good result and a very good game for 90 minutes".

Emery has not publicly set a target for the league campaign, but said Arsenal's performances have not been good enough to consider a challenge for the title just yet.

Since losing their opening two games under Emery to champions Manchester City and FA Cup winners Chelsea, the Spaniard has not tasted defeat.

So far, Arsenal have earned 18 points from the 8 games played so far and they hope to continue their winning streak when they welcome Leicester City to the Emirate Stadium on Monday 22 October after the global break. We want to play a lot of matches.

He won three times with Sevilla. The midfielder missed Wales' win over the Republic of Ireland after his wife gave birth to twins over the weekend but Ramsey is expected to be back in action for Arsenal when the Foxes come to the Emirates early next week.

"It's hard for me to comment on because I'm not there but I do know he's a great player - if it was me I know I would want to keep him around".

Ramsey said during the global break that he has no intention of pushing for a move in January, and Emery urged the midfielder to stay focused on the next match.

"For Monday against Leicester if he starts in first XI or the bench his focus must be to help us in the match, the same as any player". The football, the future is tomorrow.

"I want the mentality for the next match".

"I'm thinking about Monday's match first. Individual things are not for now".
