Chelsea vs. Champions League Giants
Chelsea is reportedly interested in signing Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale after he was dropped by manager Mikel Arteta on Sunday. The Blues face competition from Champions League giants Bayern Munich for the 25-year-old's signature.
Opportunity Knocks for Chelsea
The decision to bring in new Arsenal shot-stopper David Raya has left Ramsdale's future uncertain. Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice keeper at Paris Saint-Germain is Robert Sanchez, but Chelsea may see the chance to snatch Ramsdale from their London rivals.
Bids in the Region of £60m
While a January move is unlikely, Arsenal could be tempted to sell Ramsdale in the summer if bids around £60 million are made. The 25-year-old joined the Gunners from Sheffield United two years ago for £30 million.
Bayern Munich is also monitoring Ramsdale's situation, with his contract running until 2026. Manager Thomas Tuchel is in search of a long-term replacement for 37-year-old Manuel Neuer and may see Ramsdale as a potential target.
Ramsdale's Career So Far
Ramsdale has kept 30 clean sheets in 83 games for Arsenal and has earned four caps for the England national team. The goalkeeper's last appearance for his country came in a 3-1 win over Scotland earlier this month.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta addressed the situation between Ramsdale and Raya, stating that no player is guaranteed a spot in the team and that the aim is to perform at the highest level. Arteta expressed his regret at not making certain substitutions in the past and emphasized the importance of getting all players engaged in the team.
