Arsenal handed transfer boost as star man ommitted from matchday squad

Ramsdale interest reignited

Arsenal have been chasing the signing of Aaron Ramsdale all summer long, as they look to find competent cover for Bernd Leno, and a future first-team shot-stopper.

While Football.London initially reported that Arsenal were in advanced talks for the shot-stopper last week, they later suggested that a move had broken down after a disagreement over a potential fee.

However, the deal is now not as closed off as previously thought, with Arsenal set to make a “decisive bid” for Ramsdale in the coming days. As per James Shield of the Sheffield Star, the bid is expected to be around 28 million pounds, while London sources suggest a deal worth 20 million pounds and add-ons.

Ramsdale travelled to Euro 2020 with the England squad, but was third-choice goalkeeper and subsequently did not make an appearance for the side on the way to final heartbreak.

Goalkeeper left out of Sheffield United’s game against West Brom

Gunners fans have seemingly been handed an indication that a deal is edging closer this evening, as the shot-stopper has been left 0ut for the Blades’ Championship tie against West Bromwich Albion.

The Englishman, who is usually first choice between the sticks for Slaviša Jokanović’s side, was nowhere to be seen in the matchday squad, only fueling speculation that a move to north London is well underway.

Were he to join Arsenal, he would become the Gunners’ fifth signing of the summer, following England team-mate Ben White, young duo Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares, and most recently, Martin Odegaard.
