Ramsey set to become second highest paid player at Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will sign a vastly improved five-year contract with the club this week, reports The Guardian. The Wales international has agreed a deal worth in excess of £100,000 a week, more than doubling his current salary and making him the second-highest paid player at the Gunners, behind only Mesut Özil.

The 23 year old had more than two years remaining on the deal he signed in December 2012.

It is understood that negotiations have been taking place between Ramsey's agent, David Baldwin, and Arsenal for the last month, and the club are set to announce confirmation of the new contract in the next 48 hours.
