Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale pursuit looks to be at an end as they turn their attentions elsewhere

Posted by

It appears that Sheffield United may have done themselves a disservice over their transfer demands for keeper, Aaron Ramsdale, with Arsenal preparing to shop elsewhere.

Mikel Arteta evidently isn’t sold on Bernd Leno’s prowess between the sticks for the Gunners, and to that end, a move for England international, Ramsdale, was being looked at.

However, it’s believed that the Blades wanted around £40m for his services, and that’s a price that Arsenal aren’t willing to pay.

Sam Johnstone for West Brom
Sam Johnstone has turned in some solid displays this season.

The Daily Express report that they’re likely to turn their attentions to West Bromwich Albion’s highly-rated custodian, Sam Johnstone, instead, with the expectation being that he will be a much cheaper acquisition than Ramsdale.

It isn’t clear if the Ramsdale deal is dead in the water just yet, but clearly Arteta isn’t going to be held to ransom over and transfers.

Whoever does end up signing on the dotted line will arguably be given every chance to establish themselves.

  1. Why a disservice? Our aim is promotion and Rammers is a key to that. We Blades are sick znd tired of our club giving way our best players. We are not here to help Arsenal or anyone else.

  2. Do me a favour,we sold Martinez to Villa for £20 mill,
    £40 mill is just pure greed😡

  3. Done a disservice to our transfer demands ? Have you considered the fact we don’t want to sell so any price is going to have to be big to tempt us I’m more than happy for them to move on as are most fans and I suspect the club too

  4. AC Milan sold “Donnarumma” to PSG this season, then immediately moved in to buy his replacement Mike Maignan from Lille for $12.2m. If Milan bought him to replace Donnarumma, they must think he is pretty good.

    The lad is just 26 years of age and has already played for France.

    Arsenal could have snapped him up months ago, but Lille did not get relegated last season, so I suspect this must have been what turned them off?
