Ramsdale is not in a hurry to clarify his future after losing first-team place at Arsenal

Aaron Ramsdale is taking a patient approach to determine his future with Arsenal, even after losing his spot in the first team to David Raya.

Despite being recognised as one of the Premier League’s top goalkeepers, Ramsdale faced increased competition when Mikel Arteta brought in David Raya during the last transfer window.

Raya has recently earned a place in the starting lineup, impressing with clean sheets in his last two appearances. This has made it more challenging for Ramsdale to reclaim his starting role.

While Ramsdale has garnered interest from various European clubs, including Chelsea, a report in The Sun suggests that the former Bournemouth goalkeeper is in no rush to make a decision about his future.

For the time being, his focus remains on competing for his place within the team, and he maintains confidence in his ability to regain his starting position.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Raya has been superb since he came into the team and there is no way he will be benched if he continues to keep clean sheets.

The Spaniard’s introduction is good for competitiveness, and we must continue supporting the manager.

  1. I totally agree.. Ramsgate will just have 2 wait,I think that Raya’s ability on the ball and how he comes off his line 2 claim the ball is fantastic 👏 👌

  2. It could be the calm before the storm, but am not sure he loses the number one spot as yet, he’s expected to start the North London Derby on Sunday.

  3. Raya has the composure and accurate distribution that Arteta wants and Ramsdale lacks.

    Ramsdale can learn and improve, or he can move on.

    Arsenal comes first; I’m not bothered a more composed GK has gotten starts. It happens to other players, why should GK’s be immune?

    Seems to be a dust up about Ramsdale not playing. So what? We have 2 clean sheets and look more composed in goal. Isn’t this best for Arsenal? Team over individual, Ramsdale will be better for the challenge or move on.

  4. We should remember that Arteta always wanted Raya even before Ramsdale joined. Just that Brenford were not ready to do business at the time even though the player himself wanted it.
    I suspect that the deal to bring in Raya was always on the cards, and that if he continues to impress as he has done so far, by next season he’d be the undisputed No.1, and Ramsdale would either accept second fiddle or …….

  5. I commented on this in a previous article and it’s a no brainer to me to pursue the best.
    It’s a tough old world but if Raya proves to be better for Arsenal then Ramsdale will move on. Leno had to.
    I cannot get sentimental about it I’m afraid even though I like Ramsdale. . Certain players have sat on their contracts at the expense of their careers and made it difficult for Arsenal to move them on. so it’s a two way street

  6. Raya has played 2 games with very little to do although he did manage to remain focused. His distribution was nothing above average. Let’s see how Raya performs tomorrow before we turn Ramsdale into a pariah…
