After impressing in the tail end of last season, Ramsey will begin the upcoming campaign hoping to add on to the 38 starts he made last time out.
The Welsh international scored just two goals in the previous campaign and he admitted to The Daily Mail he would be working on that aspect of his game during pre-season training.
"I think I was very happy with my form at the end of the season. I was playing in central midfield, that's my favourite position and I still think there's more to come from me and I was pleased with the way I played and my contribution to the team. I think I proved a lot of people wrong, showed exactly what I can do and there's a lot more to come from me," Ramsey stated.
"Scoring goals is one thing I need to improve on and hopefully I can do that this season. I was in the right positions a number of times last season but didn't have the composure to put them away. I need to work on that because I should have scored a few goals."
During the previous campaign, Arsene Wenger's men had to wait till the last match day to edge out London rivals Tottenham for the final Champions League qualification spot, but Ramsey expressed hopes for the Gunners to get their season up and running early this time round.
"We need to get off to a good start, put ourselves right into contention early on. We've always had to play catch up and hopefully we can make a better start this time. You can't put your finger on exactly the reasons but the fact is we haven't started off well but hopefully now we've had a good end, get a good pre-season under our belts and we hit the ground running," he said.
"Our target is to put ourselves right in contention early on and not let that gap get as big as it has been in the last few years. In the last ten or 11 games, we were undefeated and put in a load of great performances and that form is what you need to compete at the top."
