Unai Emery who was appointed head coach of Arsenal in May

The England youth worldwide scored Arsenal's equaliser in a 1-1 friendly draw against Atletico Madrid in Singapore on Thursday - with the LaLiga side going on to win the resulting penalty shoot-out 3-1.

"Aaron is an important player for us, and the contract is one thing for the club and the player".

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is confident that Aaron Ramsey will sign a new deal with the club.

It remains to be seen if Emery will throw the youngster into the deep end when the Gunners take on champions Manchester City in their Premier League season opener on Aug 12. "Aaron has the qualities to be the captain".

'This is the moment for young players to show their quality, like Emile has done today, ' he said.

So we went in 1-0 down and Emery swapped Cech for Leno, and Atletico swapped Oblak for Adan.

The 27-year-old said there was a buzz about the team as the players take on the Spanish coach's tactics, most notably a high-tempo, pressing game.

Having started slowly, Diego Simeone's under-strength Atletico team came to life when Juanfran burst into the box just before the half-hour mark and pulled the ball back to Angel Correa, whose first-time shot was headed clear by Shkodran Mustafi.

Arsenal, known for playing possession-based football, is likely to switch to a mix of possession and high-pressing tactics under Emery, according to star forward Alexandre Lacazette. "What's important for us is that every young player is working very hard".

"We have not received any offers for him and I will say the same to any clubs who may be interested as what we said with [Clement] Lenglet - he has a buy-out clause and it's €40m."

"When I arrived here, the first meeting was with Ivan".

He told reporters: "I speak every day with him [Gazidis]".

"Today, he (Rowe) scored a very good goal and that's very good for the team".

"Listen, I'm a player who always gives 100 per cent regardless of what's going on".
