Arsenal are now going ‘all in’ for Sheffield United goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, as Alex Crook told talkSPORT.
Mikel Arteta’s side are seemingly on the hunt for a new goalkeeper and they have now focused their attention on bringing Ramsdale to the club.
In the past, other shot-stoppers have been linked with the Arsenal number one role, including Sam Johnstone.
But talkSPORT reporter, Crook, shared how Arsenal have had ‘two bids rejected’ for Ramsdale, who could cost as much as £30 million.
“It is my understanding that Arsenal have made the Sheffield United keeper their number one target,” said Crook.
“They have been linked with Sam Johnstone as well.
“But it’s all in now for Aaron Ramsdale. I am told that they have two bids rejected for the former Bournemouth goalkeeper. They are lining up a third.
“The fee could be as much as £30 million. That would be music to the ears of Bournemouth because they have a sell-on clause.”
Even though Ramsdale suffered relegation with Sheffield United, he was one of very few players who came out of that physiological-damaging season in a positive light.
Towards the back end of the 2020/21 campaign, Jurgen Klopp hailed his performance against Liverpool as ‘incredible’, as quoted by Yorkshire Live, which proves that the Englishman didn’t allow his performances to dip.
It resulted in him being part of England’s Euro 2020 squad, after he replaced the injured Nick Pope, and now it seems that road will lead him to the Emirates.
If Arsenal put want the Blades want on the table for Ramsdale then Arteta may have a new number one on his hands.
