Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to sign a new five-and-a-half year deal at the club, worth a staggering £100,000-a-week, according to The Guardian.

The Welshman has been injured since the Gunners' 3-1 win against West Ham on Boxing Day but his performances before then have earned him a blockbuster of a deal.

£100,000-a-week will make Ramsay the second-highest paid player at Arsenal, with only Mesut Ozil having a higher pay packet, which will double his current deal. 

The signing of his new deal comes just after the club revealed that Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky had also committed their future to the club.

The 23-year-old joined Arsenal for £5 million when he was just 17, and this deal is the fourth he has signed since his arrival. During the 2013-14 season he has found his form and he had scored 15 for club and country by the end of November.

And it now appears that the Welshman will stay in north London for the foreseeable future.
