Dean Windass has exclusively told Football FanCast that Arsenal should sign Aaron Ramsdale and make him their number one goalkeeper.
Following Sheffield United’s relegation from the Premier League last season, the England shot-stopper has been strongly linked with an instant return to the top-flight.
With uncertainties over Bernd Leno’s position, Arsenal are considering launching a £30m bid to secure the services of the 23-year-old, who’s been relegated in each of the last two seasons.
Arsenal controversially let Emiliano Martinez leave for Aston Villa 12 months ago, which has proved a mistake following his excellent form for Dean Smith’s side.
German international Leno has been Mikel Arteta’s first-choice keeper during his 18 months as boss, but mistakes crept into his game last season, including a notable one for Richarlison’s winner in Everton’s win at the Emirates.
If Arsenal are successful in their attempts to sign 6 ft 2 Ramsdale, Windass reckons that the former AFC Wimbledon loanee should overtake Leno in the pecking order.
He told FFC:
“I do [think Ramsdale is good enough to come in and replace Leno]. Ramsdale has been outstanding. He would be a great signing and if he made him number one, he could be a revelation.”
