Aaron Ramsdale is the latest Arsenal player who is in line for a new contract.
He joined the club from Sheffield United in 2021 initially as number two to Bernd Leno, but soon claimed the jersey from the German and has never looked back.
He is under contract until 2025, with an option for a further year, but they want to give him a new deal on improved terms to reflect his status as one of the top keepers in the Premier League.
It is virtually certain that he will be named in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Qatar later this week, something that will only boost his value to the club.
In addition to his ability between the posts, Ramsdale has brought his personality to the club and is one of the most vocal players both on the pitch and in the dressing room, and he has a close relationship with the club’s fans.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
