Arsenal faces a deadline to bring in relegated Premier League star

Arsenal has had a busy summer transfer window with the signings of the likes of Ben White and Albert Sambi Lokonga so far.

The Gunners are expected to conduct more business before this window shuts and one position they might strengthen is the goalkeeping spot on their team.

They currently have Bernd Leno as their number one goalkeeper, but the German’s position is shaky.

He committed a number of blunders last season that cost Arsenal points and the Gunners haven’t shown a willingness to give him a new deal with two more years left on his current one.

Football London says they are now looking to do a deal over the signing of Aaron Ramsdale.

The report claims that the Gunners have made signing him a priority and we could see them speed up their efforts to sign him in the next few days.

This is because Sheffield United will face Carlisle United in the Carabao Cup first round on Tuesday, August 10.

Ramsdale has returned to training and he could feature in the match. If that happens, he would be cup-tied in the competition and because of that Arsenal needs to move to sign him now.

    Calling this one star. What happen to ONANA or is he better than ONANA?

  2. JOEL says:

    They should buy Johnstone from WBA instead…He would cost less than half as much and is a better keeper.

      👍 And Onana better and cheaper, but with short term issues, which can be overcome.

    They not following the records of that kepper .

    But Ramsdale is 5 years younger and fits the new young player model.
    Ramsdale 23
    Gabriel 23 Saliba 20
    Tierney 25 Tavares 21
    Lokonga 21 ESR 21 Willock 21 Odegaard 23
    Martielli 20 Saka 19
    Azeez 18 Balogun 18.
    You can see where this is all going.

      Fair point about age but assuming all of them are good enough. Ability and desire must always come above merely being young. Plus ability to stay fit , which is the ONLY asset Xhaka has IMHO.

      However it is clear that MA is quickly intent on reducing the average team age and to his credit.

      I am far from convinced by Ramsdale, from what I saw of him last season, albeit in a rank awaful team, where you might expect him to be the outstsnding player. I did not think so and he never esp impressed me at all.

      Half decent at best but nothing special.

      I think GK is different when it comes to age Johnstone is 28 years old and would cost 15M we could definitely get 5 years out of him and as a GK he is just starting his peak years.

      1. jon fox says:

        siamois Yes, I agree and think it is generally recognised that KEEPERS do not come into their best years until pushing 28- 30 and can go on longer , esp if they are tall and rangy, like Pope and Pickford rather than heavily muscular and bulky, like Seaman was.

        TBH, I see nothing very special in RAMSDALE AND AM SURPISED HOW KEEN WE APPEAR TO BE ON HIM.

        BETTER VALUE ELSEWHERE AND I AGREE ON JOHNSTONE TOO.

        1. Ozziegunner says:

          👍 👍

        2. Sue says:

          Tall and rangy like Pickford??? Seriously?

        3. VasC says:

          3 points if you get this right, jon fox.

          Guess the player from the last PL season who tops the list of the average length of goal kicks and the highest percentage of goal kicks attempted over 40 yards.

          p.s: When you find that player, you’ll know what makes Ramsdale a much coveted player in the eyes of our management team.

    White 23

    I heard Chelsea is trying to get Lukaku back again.. for the third time and we have had two windows without trying to get Emi back.. oh certain players do come back and there’s none I feel would jump on it more than Emi Martinez.. Ramsdale my yansh!!!

  7. Sue says:

    We’ll need him for the 2nd round of the carabao cup – god help us!!

    1. VasC says:

      Arteta will be hell bent on winning the Carabao cup this season. He has already won the FA and the Community shield. So, this season Carabao cup is our top priority.

      Don’t worry about the PL trophy. We’ve got Willian for two more seasons. The season after this will be a League and UCL double. As promised Willian will be able to deliver the UCL before his contract is up and we can give him a nice farewell with a bonus PL winners’ medal. Won’t have time for Carabao cup in that season.

        You’re a funny guy, VasC… I like it! .
