Sheffield United reach an agreement to sign a potential replacement for Arsenal target

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign Aaron Ramsdale this summer with Sheffield United reaching an agreement for a goalkeeper that could replace him.

With Bernd Leno inconsistent and Alex Runarsson not trustworthy, Arsenal has decided to sign another goalkeeper in this transfer window.

They have chosen England Under21 shot-stopper, Ramsdale as the man to join them for the long haul.

They have been struggling to reach an agreement with the Blades over signing him so far with the recently relegated club looking to make good money from his sale or to keep him.

However, they may have agreed to sell him finally with Football Italia reporting that they have reached an agreement with AS Roma to sign Robin Olsen.

The Swede has been made surplus to requirements by Jose Mourinho and can return to England where he previously played for Everton.

The report says Roma has agreed to loan him to the Blades for this campaign, but the goalkeeper has to accept the offer first.

It remains unclear if he would join a club in England’s second-tier or wait for a bigger team to come in.

If he agrees to join, Arsenal could finally strike a deal with the Blades for Ramsdale.

    What a decision

    Another signing that doesn’t fit the brief and does it make us better? If he is back up, then ok but a lot of money and changes little. If he is to replace Leno, im not overly excited because he isnt renowned for playing out from the back. Im really surprised we are pursuing him.

    A lot of money for a backup

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      Priorities? What about an upgrade of midfield?

      1. Stephanie says:

        Yes. We need a midfielder. Actually that was the first position we should have gone for

        1. Noah Fayia says:

          Arteta doesn’t know his problem so he can not get any possible solution

      2. Gunner22 says:

        The first we should upgrade the manager and his coaching staff. We have lost the attacking flair . I really do not know if the gaffer is training his men to pass in his own half and then pass to the opposition to score. Poor poor transfers – Marri, Soares, Gabriel, White, Runar, retaining Xhaka, now Ramsdale, Odegard. Get this deluded man out of our club. We missed out on Tuchel or even Benitez.

  5. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

    the only piece of information I’ve heard in some time that’s more disturbing than this was when the possibility of Xhaka re-upping for 4 years, on more money no less, was first postulated…boy have we sullied the armband over the last decade and a half

  6. Lance peters says:

    The biggest problem we have is Arteta. We say we probably a right and attacking midfielder away from competing. Fair enough , but even with this current squad we are strong enough to beat the likes of Brentford , Norwich , Aston villa etc..but we fall short because of Arteta who is not good enough to motivate and create basic football strategies. Benitez for example would get this squad to at least 6th position. Arteta probably 10-12th

  7. Goonster says:

    Arteta is starting to make me so so nervous with these kinds of over the top average big money signings.

    A large sum of money for a back up GK. Wonder why we are not looking at Sam Johnstone as back up to Lenno or Onana to replace Lenno as no.1 GK. I am confused with Artetas thinking. In the Brenford game, our team looked totally lackadisial, as confused as the manager, as tactless as the manager. We were only looking for KT to make the crosses and it was so so predictable. Once upon a time we were the mighty Arsenal considered amongst the elite not only in the PL but also in Europe and here we are losing to a newly promoted team, promoted to the PL after 74 years, with due respect to Brenford. They played with their hearts, had a definite game plan, attacked with rigour, pressed with intent and had a match winning mentality and most importantly had a manager who knew exactly what he was doing and not like our manager who did not know what to do and had no plan A forget about plan B. Unless there is a clear change in tactics, game plan, attitude, mentality and the willingness to play for the shirt, I fear for the worst for the season. There is total lack of motivation from Artetas part, the players look completely lost and this idea of playing from the back when the players are not comfortable is baffling. Either Arteta totally changes his game plan, his rigidity, his ego and his bias or Arsenal changes Arteta for another manager. Enough is enough, a stitch in time saves nine. Already so much time is lost, there has to be some drastic change somewhere asap.

  9. M Hunt says:

    The combined price of Freddie Woodman and Andre Onana together is less than we appear willing to pay for Ramsdale. Why buy Ramsdale? Even Sam Johnstone at WBA would be cheaper than Ramsdale. He’s 28, English and in the last year of his contract. Is Ramsdale being pursued because he’s world class or because he will improve the team? Even for Arsenal this is a really weird one.

  10. Malaysian gunner says:

    The gunner attack is slow and ponderous and predictable as well.
    IN thd midst of passing ,the stop and look,gives defenders time to regroup and foil the attack

  11. Dacoster says:

    I have said it before and I will continue saying it,arteta is not good enough for arsenal his decisions are totally rubbish.sack arteta and get us a good manager.

  12. gerry burke says:

    why cant we hijack the robin olsen deal, take him from under the blades noses for trying to extract an unbelievable transfer fee for their ordinary keeper. go for him , see what happens, hahahaha.
