Arsenal checking out a young English keeper with more clean sheets than Raya

Arsenal eye Ramsdale replacement

Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the situation of Sunderland goalkeeper Anthony Patterson who has impressed this season.

The young England international has made 43 appearances for The Black Cats this term, keeping an admirable 13 clean sheets. David Raya is currently on 12…

It is believed that his consistent performances have attracted the scouting team of not just Arsenal but English giants Liverpool as well.

Scouts from both the clubs were reportedly in attendance for Patterson’s latest match against Bristol City, as he kept a clean sheet for Mike Dodds’ team.

With Aaron Ramsdale’s future away from North London looking inevitable, signing a young talent would be a rational move by the Gunners.

The 23-year-old’s spot in the squad will also count as homegrown, which will add more appeal to the deal, if Arsenal end up pursuing it.

Impressively, the young shot-stopper did not miss a single minute of action for the Championship side. In total he has had 121 outings with Sunderland, keeping 37 clean sheets.

Patterson is a product of Sunderland’s academy set-up, featuring for the club’s U18 and U23’s several times.

In summer 2021, he was loaned out to then National League side Notts County, where he featured 11 times.

His performances at Meadow Lane earned him a spot in the Sunderland first team. He hasn’t looked back since.

It now appears like if Patterson keeps putting in displays he has been doing in the past few months, it would only be a matter of time since he is snapped up a Premier League club.

  1. I highlighted his talent on JA earlier this season, and having watched dozens of matches in the Championship this season I have not seen a better Keeper.Rarely have I seen a stopper who is so good in one on one situations and he also has a very good record when it comes to saving penalties.At 6’2′ he is a powerful presence in his box and were it not for him I suspect Sunderland would be involved in a relegation battle.On the downside, he is not particularly accomplished when it comes to playing out with the ball at his feet and this is an area where he could improve.A very strong candidate to replace Ramsdale who is likely to move on at the end of the season.
