AARON RAMSEY will NOT be getting a new contract offer as Unai Emery ignores fresh calls to keep the Arsenal star.
Rambo is set to leave as a free agent at the end of the season after the club withdrew their contract offer in September.

And boss Emery insists there will be no going back on that decision despite Ramsey’s impressive recent performances.
The Spaniard said: “That situation was closed two months ago.
“I told him then that I understand that his future is very important for him and his family, but that I wanted him to focus only on the present and on his performances.
“And I think in the last matches, his focus has been there.

“We look at him in every match and if he plays like he did against Tottenham on Sunday, it’s best for him and for us.”
Emery has decided Ramsey and top-earner Mesut Ozil are too similar in style to play together.
Yet many Gunners fans believe the Welsh midfielder, 27, is far more committed than Ozil, who signed a new £350,000-a-week contract in January.
German playmaker Ozil is a major doubt for tomorrow’s trip to Manchester United after missing Sunday’s North London derby with a back spasm.

Emery said: “Mesut has had a backache since last Tuesday. At the moment he is working alone and I don’t know if he will be OK for Wednesday.”
Ozil has already missed four Premier League games this season and his regular absences are starting to divide the Arsenal supporters.
Former Gunners star Ray Parlour said: “I’d rather keep Ramsey than Ozil.
“Ozil is a great player, but we didn’t miss him against Spurs whereas Ramsey made a big impact — and he was brilliant in midweek in the Europa League."
