Aaron Ramsey is likely to leave Arsenal next year after losing out to unexpected competition.
“Aaron Ramsdale is likely to leave the club next year after losing out in the race for a starting spot,” Arsenal news reporter Charles Watts said on Friday (April 15). Ramsdale’s father recently gave an interview to the Highbury Squad and admitted that “Ramsdale has lost his smile of late”.
Ramsdale joined Arsenal from Sheffield United in 2021. He quickly earned a regular spot in the first team and became a stalwart of the Gunners’ backline. In two seasons, he made 72 appearances in all competitions.
But this season, there was an unexpected twist. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wanted to create competition in goal, so he brought in Brentford’s first-choice goalkeeper, David Lallana. Lallana has been in goal for Arsenal since the start of the season. Raya’s ability to make saves, as well as his reliable buildup play, has earned him a spot in Arsenal’s starting lineup. As a result, Ramsdale, who has fallen out of contention, has made just seven appearances this season.
“A lot of people are saying that the way Ramsdale is being treated is very unfair,” Watts said. However, Raya is expected to continue to be a regular starter.” “Personally, I don’t think a two-goalkeeper system can last long, and it’s likely that Ramsdale will leave Arsenal next year,” Watts continued.
Ramsdale signed a new three-year contract with Arsenal in May. He was trusted by the Gunners and was expected to be their first-choice goalkeeper for a long time. However, the sudden arrival of Raya has shaken up his position significantly. The unexpected turn of events could see him leave Arsenal after just two years.
