Ramsdale throws gauntlet; challenge Leno for the number one shirt

Aaron Ramsdale throws gauntlet;  challenge Bernd Leno for number one status

“Every time I played here, I went out and said: imagine this is your home every week. Hopefully I can play and play well in front of a packed and packed Emirates Stadium. I can not stop smiling. It’s one of those days. “

To say that Aaron Ramsdale is chewing a bit to start the next chapter of his career would be a massive understatement.

The England Under-21 international has had a dizzying summer in recent months; first making Gareth Southgate’s final squad for Euro2020, and now securing a move from relegated Sheffield United to one of the giants of English football.

And it hasn’t taken him long to win over the Arsenal faithful with comments in his first official interview since joining the club in a £ 25 million move.

By sitting down and talking to the clubs’ social media team, Ramsdale made his intentions clear regarding what fans can expect of him;

“Competition is key and it is also a great place to be. Bernd has done a fantastic job the last few seasons and I’m here to push him to the end and take his jersey. “

With the fear among the Arsenal fan base that the club would throw a hefty fee (more than they spend on Bernd Leno) on Ramsdale only for him to replace the German international, he has certainly been put to bed.

Despite the state of his old club and a lot of initial noise that suggested Ramsdale is not good enough for the Gunners, the data behind Ramsdale and his great ability to play from behind show a modern goalkeeper that Mikel Arteta could certainly see as a vital piece of the long-term puzzle in the Arsenal project.
With uncertainty surrounding Bernd Leno all summer long, this summer’s financial investment at Ramsdale not only provides valuable short-term competition, but a homegrown replacement is already on the doorstep if Leno goes ahead in the future. righ now.
