Ramsdale could make Chelsea switch

Aaron Ramsdale could be heading across London to join Chelsea in the summer.

Having lost his first-team place at Arsenal to David Raya, the 25 year old is desperate to leave the club to play regular football, aware that his extended period on the bench is harming his England prospects.

Chelsea, meanwhile, want to upgrade their goalkeeping options, and have already indicated that Robert Sanchez, whom they signed from Brighton just a year ago, might be surplus to requirements.

Djordje Petković deputised for Sanchez whilst he was injured recently, but he is regarded primarily as a back-up, and not a long-term solution between the sticks.

Whilst Mikel Arteta has publicly avowed that he wants to keep Ramsdale, who remains very popular among the Arsenal supporter base, there is a growing internal acknowledgement that a parting of the ways is inevitable, and the Gunners themselves, are now on the hunt for a back-up to Raya.
