Just a few days ago, Arsenal had finally confirmed that experienced duo Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky had signed new contracts with the club.

Manager Arsene Wenger was clearly happy with the news that two of his more important players have committed for the future.

Mertesacker has been one of the best performers for the team, playing a solid role alongside Laurent Koscielny in the back four.

Rosicky, 33, is still an extremely reliable player when called upon.

Wenger shared his pleasure with the club's official website, stating: "We are delighted that Mertesacker and Rosicky have committed their futures to the club."

However, their could be even more good news for the Gunners as reports suggest that their midfielder Aaron Ramsey is close to agreeing a new long-term contract.

Ramsey, 23,  who has been out injured recently, had a great start to the season, helping Arsenal to a title-challenging position.

The Welshmen has been at Arsenal since 2008, having joined from Cardiff for £5m. Ramsey only signed a new contract midway through last season but his form this season has prompted Arsenal to secure his future even further.

He has scored 13 goals this season and in doing so, he has scored more goals than in every single season he has previously played for Arsenal, combined.

The new deal will see him become the second highest paid player at Arsenal, behind record-signing Mesut Ozil, in which his wages will be doubled to a sum over £100,000-a-week.

More good news for Arsenal regarding Ramsey as well with the midfielder back in full training for Arsenal.

The news will be even more crucial for Arsenal who have just learnt that Jack Wilshere is out for six weeks with a foot injury sustained in the friendly for England against Denmark on Wednesday, which makes Ramsey's return even more timely.

Since injuring his thigh on Boxing Day Ramsey and has failed to make an appearance ever since, with the Gunners now desperate to get the Welsh international or January loan signing Kim Kallstrom back in first-team contention.
