Aaron Ramsdale could be on his way to Arsenal, according to Sheffield United.
This summer, Arsenal are allegedly interested in signing England goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
Sheffield United, who did not include Aaron Ramsdale in their team to face Carlisle United in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, has given Arsenal a big transfer boost.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
If Ramsdale had played and then finalized his speculated move to the Gunners, he would have been unable to compete.
Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, is overseeing a significant overhaul of his squad, with new talent taking the place of established players who have outstayed their welcome.
The goalkeeper from Sheffield United has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium as Arteta considers his goalkeeping options for the 2021-22 season.
Last season, Ramsdale was a member of a Blades team that was comfortably relegated from the Premier League, although his performance did not represent his performance.
The 23-year-old recorded the third-most saves in the Premier League and impressed in a handful of his appearances.
Arteta and Arsenal technical director Edu have set their sights on the England under-21 international.
Since joining Arsenal from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018, goalkeeper Bernd Leno has been inconsistent.
Last season, the 29-year-old made many high-profile errors, including allowing Richarlison’s shot to slither through his hands and roll into the net via his shin in a 1-0 loss to Everton.
Ramsdale would most likely be brought in as a backup to Leno, with the goal of eventually seizing the No. 1 spot.
In late July, Sky Sports reported that Arsenal had made a third bid for Ramsdale, for roughly £25 million.
And Arteta would like Ramsdale to be available for cup games so that he can fill in for Leno when the German retires permanently in 2022, as is currently planned.
Slavisa Jokanovic, the manager of Sheffield United, has granted that wish, with Ramsdale not even being named on the bench for the club’s League Cup encounter against Carlisle.
Ramsdale did play for Yorkshire in their 1-0 Championship loss to Birmingham City on Saturday, but that does not rule him out of playing in the domestic league if he joins Arsenal.
