It has been reported in the past that Arsenal was very keen on signing Aaron Ramsdale this season. Aaron Ramsdale has been reported to be pushing for the movie as it is his dream to play for Arsenal. He was a part of the England Euro Squad for the 2021 Euros. Currently, Sheffield is in the Championship due to getting relegated last season.
Currently, in the Arsenal Squad, there are two goalkeepers, Bernd Leno and Alex Runarsson. It has been reported the club wishes to sell off Alex due to his not being apt for the role in the club. Due to this Arsenal is just one injury away from having quite the situation. In the 2019-20 season, Bernd Leno had been injured which helped Martinez to play in goal for the rest of the season. The club requires a backup goalkeeper. Arsenal has been linked to Neto from Barcelona during the Transfer Window but hasn’t written it in concrete. Last season Arsenal had the 3rd least goals scored against them. While the club seemed to be defensively structured, it was due to the team’s quite the counter-attacking style. Waiting for the transition to make the most of their chances. Additionally, Aaron Ramsdale is valued at £10.80m according to Transfermarkt.
Why Signing Aaron Ramsdale should be highly prioritized by Arsenal?
Last season according to FBREF, the only Goalkeeper who had a higher shot saving percentage than Aaron Ramsdale was Sam Johnstone from West Brom. The 23-year-old did light up the scene after Dean Henderson finished his loan stint at Sheffield United. While the English goalkeeper tried his best to save his team from relegation, the attacking output let him down. In the two games played this season in the Championship, Arron has made two saves while averaging a 75% pass accuracy and keeping two clean sheets.
If Arsenal really wants to try their best to get into the top 6 or 7th in the league, they will need to sign a player like Aaron Ramsdale for the goalkeeper position. Against Brentford Arsenal played with a squad of an average of 24.7 years.
