Liverpool and England star gives Arteta food for thought about selling Aaron Ramsdale

Arsenal has been warned about the repercussions of releasing Aaron Ramsdale this summer. Following David Raya’s arrival, Aaron Ramsdale spent most of the 2023–24 season warming the Arsenal bench, leading many to assume he would leave Arsenal given that he’s too talented to be a No. 2.

Given how talented a custodian he is, Liverpool star Trent Alexander Arnold’s comments on the Gunners keeper may have simply hinted at why Arsenal would have been better off keeping Rambo or not allowing him to move to a main rival, as there is speculation that he’s leaving. The right-back’s claims make it clear that he has tremendous regard for our goalkeeper.

“He’s really good with his feet. As you can see under pressure, he’s really good, even the pass to (Eberechi) Eze,” Alexander-Arnold said on England’s official channels while watching a clip of Ramsdale in training

“I’m looking at the technique more and more on the pass. He doesn’t take a touch afterwards. The shape of his body, it’s like that cat meme with a cat taking a free-kick.

“Rammers is my boy I back him to the death. Incredible goalkeeper and incredible guy.”

Trent is a defender who has played with one of the best goalkeepers, Alisson Becker, so he should have an idea of what a great goalkeeper is. Keeping Ramsdale would have been excellent for Arsenal, but I doubt it will happen. That being said, hopefully they will not allow him to join a direct rival, such as Liverpool. Not long ago, it was believed that Liverpool’s new manager, Arne Slot, is a Ramsdale fan. None of those transfer claims have materialised, but who knows? Trent’s comments could give the Reds some transfer ideas.

Maybe Aaron Ramsdale will come back rejuvenated from Germany (especially if he brings home a medal) and be ready to wait for his chance to win his spot back from David Raya? I hope so!

  1. His problem is not his technical ability or shot stopping ability, it’s his decision making and concentration level.
    He sometimes holds on to the ball a little bit to long at his feet allowing the attacker to close him down before passing the ball. It is a little bit too risky as the attackers know this and as a group they attack him and close down the angles to prevent his passing. He needs to makecquicker decisions and not take chances. Otherwise a brilliant shot stopper at short range, lightning reflexes, but he creates his own pressure by waiting too long to release the ball. He is still young and learning all the time, but a brilliant shot stopper, especially from close range. Raya is not as good from close range, but still better than most other goalkeepers and faster at releasing the ball and better shot stopper from long free kicks and set pieces.

  2. But Arsenal have not said to Aaron Ramsdale that he can leave them this summer to find another club. Or have they said so and I’ve ,misused it? And I don’t think that Ramsdale himself has privately or publicly said that he wants to leave Arsenal this summer.
    So, I think is the people who are just making things up for him speculating that he could leave the Gunners this summer. For because of his being demoted to the no2 goalkeeper’s spot in the team last season by Arteta his manager.
    But as nothing is permanent in football because of it being dynamic. Things can therefore change next season that will see Ramsdale regains the goalkeeper’s no1 spot. So if I were him he should exercise more patience to bid for his time to see if the change happens.
    But I can understand that for Ramsdale, time is of the essence. So if a big-six premier league club side comes for him this window. And promise him to make him their 1st choice keeper. Would he resist the temptation to say NO instead of YES to them? Well! I woildn’t know.
