Arsenals Attempt To Sign Aaron Ramsdale Collapsed As The Gunners Refused To Pay The Asking Price Of Ps30 Million According To The Daily Mail

Arsenal’s attempts to buy Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale this summer have apparently been shelved due to the Blades’ refusal to lower their PS30 million asking price.
The Arsenal are looking for a new goalkeeper to compete with current No. 1 Bernd Leno, and have highlighted England’s 23-year-old prodigy as a possible candidate.
Arsenal, on the other hand, were charged PS30 million by the Championship club, who just signed Ramsdale from Bournemouth for PS18.5 million in the summer of 2020.
As Sportsmail reported earlier this week, Arsenal and Sheffield United conducted discussions on Wednesday, although the Gunners were keen to keep their initial outlay down to a sum in the region of PS20m, with add-ons pulling the deal closer. Mikel Arteta is interested in signing a new goalkeeper as competition for No 1 Bernd Leno.
Yet, according to The Sun, the Gunners have withdrawn from talks entirely because they are unwilling to meet Ramsdale’s asking price.
As a result, Mikel Arteta will have to look for a new goalkeeper elsewhere, and the club has informed Ramsdale that they are moving on to other prospects.
Ramsdale is said to be ‘gutted’ at the deal falling through, as he now faces a season in the Championship.
Arsenal were quoted PS30 million for Ramsdale, who only joined from Bournemouth last summer. Leno’s contract with Arsenal expires in two years, and the Gunners wanted Ramsdale as a replacement. Ramsdale started Sheffield United’s first game of the season, a 1-0 home defeat by Birmingham City, but was rested for the midweek Carabao Cup win over Carlisle United.
After Jordan Pickford and Sam Johnstone, the stopper has had a busy summer with England, headed to Euro 2020 as Gareth Southgate’s third-choice goalkeeper.
Arsenal’s current No 1 is Leno, who beat off Emiliano Martinez for the job last summer before the latter was sold to Aston Villa for PS20 million.
The German’s current Arsenal contract expires in two years, and the Gunners had wanted Ramsdale as a long-term replacement.
Arteta has made finding a new goalkeeper a major priority, but they were struck a setback when Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana chose Lyon over north London for only PS6.8 million.
