Unai Emery intends to make Aaron Ramsey central to his plans at Arsenal, according to Sky sources.

The new Gunners boss - confirmed on Wednesday morning - is understood to have revealed in his interview his hopes for Ramsey, who has just a year left to run on his current contract, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to play important roles.

Ramsey has been in talks with the north London club over a new deal for several months that have yet to result in agreement, and his future at the club following Arsene Wenger's departure has been widely speculated on.

Ramsey did not feature in the promotional material for Arsenal's new home kit on Tuesday, however, and neither did Jack Wilshere, whose contract expires next month.

But Wilshere, who missed out on the England World Cup squad, is understood to be close to agreeing a new deal.
