Former Arsenal star Paul Merson was "shocked" that Aaron Ramsey stay at the club this summer after being linked with a move away throughout the window.
While there was reported interest from Barcelona and Chelsea in the recent transfer window, the 27-year-old remained in north London, although has now entered the final year of his current deal at the Gunners, with a new contract far from being agreed.
One man who was surprised he remained at the club was Merson, who now believes he should sign a new deal at the Emirates or risk being a bit-part player should he join another side.
Speaking to Sky Sports, as quoted by The Metro, he said: "I am shocked he is still there. He should just sign now.
"I thought Chelsea might come in for him. But Arsenal is a massive football club. He plays every week for Arsenal. He could go elsewhere and might only play 15 games every season."
Although Arsenal finished a disappointing sixth last season, Ramsey had a decent campaign fro the centre of midfield, scoring seven goals and providing ten assists in the league.
Despite there being uncertainty surrounding Ramsey's long-term future, he has featured in both of Arsenal's Premier League games so far under new boss Unai Emery, defeats to both Manchester City and Chelsea.
