Arsenal urged to finish deal for thrilling Toon star
Danny Mills has questioned Arsenal’s quest for Aaron Ramsdale and urged them to sign Newcastle United youngster Freddie Woodman instead.
Arsenal are reportedly preparing a £ 30m ($ 42m) blow to Ramsdale, with head coach Mikel Arteta looking to bolster his goalkeeping division after Mat Ryan returned to Brighton on a loan at Emirates Stadium.
Bend Leno is currently number one in the club and has no real competition for that spot, but if he gets injured the Gunners have no real quality to replace the German between the sticks
Ramsdale has firmly established himself as Sheffield United’s No. 1 goalkeeper and despite being powerless to prevent further relegation last season, he has earned a spot on Gareth Southgate’s English line-up for the European Championship
However, amid all the speculation that Arsenal is ready to pay nearly £ 30m to land a transfer deal, Mills has urged the Arsenal board to take a step for the highly rated toon-stopper Woodman instead
“It’s bizarre,” Mills told Football Insider.
“Go get Freddie Woodman for £ 10 million. If you want a substitute goalkeeper then go.
“He has good experience, a decent goalkeeper. It’ll come through and probably cost you less than half.
“Aaron Ramsdale is not like, ‘Wow, outstanding goalkeeper worth over £ 30million’. It seems like a lot of money for what you get. “
Look, it has been interesting to see what kind of players have been linked to Arsenal this summer and we are shocked to see that they are ready to pay so much money for Ramsdale
But it will be interesting to see how it all turns out
