Unai Emery says he respects Aaron Ramsey's decision to leave Arsenal.

Widespread reports suggest that the Welshman will have a medical with Juventus on Sunday after he agreed a five-year deal - that will start in the summer - with the Serie A champions, but Emery insists the midfielder is still committed to playing for the Gunners this season.

"My idea and focus, I say to him every day, is with us," said Emery as Sky Sports reported. "We need his performances for us and the last matches I am very happy with him.

"I asked him in the last match at Blackpool if he's ok to help us play, he said yes I want to play. He played with a big commitment to us.

"His future is individually for him, for his family, his agent. Every training day with us he is working very well and I want his behaviour and focus the same for West Ham on Saturday."

The Spaniard added: "I respect his decision a lot. I cannot say more than this situation.

"For me the most important (thing) is Aaron Ramsey is with us. His future I respect a lot because it is a very private decision.

"But between him and us, I am very happy with him now."
