Aaron Ramsey will reportedly wait until January to decide on his Arsenal.
The Welshman can leave the Gunners on a free when his contract expires next summer and club chiefs are keen to agree an extension.
But the Daily Mail insists Ramsey, 27, is in no hurry and is set to follow Mesut Ozil’s example in waiting until he is ready.
Arsenal have so far failed to meet their playmaker’s demands but he is in a strong position and can speak to other clubs from January.
Ozil’s hold-out ended up netting him a £350,000-a-week deal with Gunners chiefs keen to avoid losing a prized asset for nothing.
Unai Emery dropped Ramsey for the clash against Chelsea but spoke highly of the Wales international following yesterday’s win over West Ham.

“They can give him the ball in a difficult moment because he plays with high personality.”
On his performance, Ramsey added: “Second half we created a few opportunities and it’s a new process for us.
“We had a tough start and are trying to improve every game.
