Aaron Ramsdale feels ‘gutted’ after the a potential transfer to Arsenal broke down, according to Sun reporter Tom Barclay.

Barclay reports that the North London outfit informed the 23-year-old that they would be pursuing other targets after failing to meet the demands of Sheffield United.

The Athletic reported last night that the two clubs failed to agree a transfer fee for the £35m-rated ace, with Arsenal unwilling to offer Sheffield a guaranteed initial fee of £20m for the stopper.

It’s added that Gunners and Blades chiefs met in Hertfordshire for face-to-face talks on Wednesday, but instead of a breakthrough it ended up being a breakdown, much to Ramsdale’s dismay.

Ramsdale returned to Sheffield United from Bournemouth last summer, but fell to the same fate as the Cherries as he was relegated with the Blades.

The ace’s performances, in a campaign that saw his goal bombarded with shots, impressed Gareth Southgate though as Ramsdale was drafted into the Euros squad after Dean Henderson was injured.

  1. Would be impossible to justify spending more than 15 million when they sold Emi Martinez for 20 million. Glad this has collapsed. They could buy both Sam Johnstone and Onana and still have change from £20 million.
