Pundit is convinced that Arsenal will miss out on this transfer target

Gabby Agbonlahor has tipped Arsenal to miss out on the signing of Mat Ryan to Celtic after the Scotsmen became interested in a move for him.

Ryan spent the second half of last season on loan at Arsenal and he proved to be a worthy deputy to Bernd Leno.

He has returned to Brighton now and looks set for a move away as he is still not the first choice at the South Coast club.

Arsenal’s other goalkeeper is Alex Runarsson and the Iceland international has proven to be unreliable in the games that he has played for the Gunners.

They would prefer to have Ryan as the backup to Leno, but Celtic has now emerged as another possible destination for him.

Football Insider reveals that Celtic have promised him their number one shirt as well as making him their first choice.

Agbonlahor admits that moving to Arsenal would have been a dream transfer for him, however, he would rather move to Celtic where he will be guaranteed regular playing time.

Agbonlahor told Football Insider: “I think he’ll want to be number one.

“He was number one for a long period at Brighton.

“It would’ve been a dream move, a move to Arsenal and just to get any minutes there.

“But I think he’d rather be number one at Celtic than number two at Arsenal.

“I see him going there to Celtic if they can get the right package together.”

      For me ESR is far more superior and I do not even like Martin.

    We have to play them at some point
    Looking on the bright side a lot of their players will have been involved in the Euros… fatigue etc
    I intend to start the season on a positive note …. even if it goes t*ts up shortly after

    Mat Ryan would surely take a move to Arsenal, if an approach was made, provided he was advised that he could compete fairly with Bernd Leno for the #1 position. In other words no guarantees, unlike what Emi Martinez apparently didn’t accept.
    Should Arsenal get Andre Onana for around £7 million, they will still require cover while he serves his ban.
    Word is that Arsenal is interested in Aaron Ramsdale 1.88m goal keeper from relegated Sheffield United, who was recently appointed to the England squad. Reportedly SU want £17 million.
