Arsenal reach Ramsdale agreement 0

Posted on August 18, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Sheffield United over the transfer of Aaron Ramsdale, according to multiple sources.

A recent report suggested the talks between the clubs had been brought to a halt by a significant gap in their respective valuations of the goalkeeper, but it seems the obstacles have been overcome. Apparently, the Blades initially asked for £40 million for Ramsdale, whose contract at Bramall Lane runs until 2024, while Arsenal were willing to offer around half that amount. In the end, a compromise was found, and as David Ornstein reported for The Athletic on Wednesday afternoon, the Gunners will be paying £24m straight up, with another £6m to come on top of that through add-ons, which are only likely to be triggered if Ramsdale some day replaces Bernd Leno as the No.1 at the Emirates.

The negotiations between Arsenal and Sheffield United about the proposed transfer of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale are on the brink of breaking down following a face-to-face meeting held on Wednesday, according to The Athletic.

The chiefs of the two clubs met in Hertfordshire to discuss a possible deal, but their respective estimates of what the 23-year-old goalkeeper is worth in today’s market were far apart. Apparently, the Blades and their Saudi owners were looking to start the talks at £35 million, while the Gunners had been hoping to pay half that amount.

Arsenal maintain Maddison interest 0

Arsenal remain firmly interested in signing James Maddison from Leicester City this summer, according to Sky Sports.

The situation is however, not as straightforward as it could have been. The Foxes are apparently just as reluctant to see the attacking midfielder leave the King Power Stadium and will not agree to allow it to happen for anything less than £70 million. For Arsenal, that seems a bit steep at the moment, following the arrival of Ben White for £50m, apart from midfielder Albert Sambi Lonkonga and left-back Nuno Tavares.

Arsenal considering Aaron Ramsdale 0

Arsenal are interested in Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, several media outlets have reported. He is, however, only one of a number of options the club are mulling over at the moment.

The option that has drawn the most attention over the last several months is undoubtedly Andre Onana. The interest in the Ajax man was put on hold for a while after he received a year-long ban for consuming a banned substance, by mistake as it turned out, but the punishment has been reduced to nine months and Onana is set to return to action in November. The club have therefore reportedly restarted the talks with the Dutch side.

Arsenal linked with Bissouma and Berge 0

Ever since reports claiming Dani Ceballos would leave Arsenal and return to Real Madrid when his loan deal expires, rumours linking the Gunners with what seems like every central midfielder out there have been popping up like mushrooms after rain. Rangers’ Glen Kamara has featured in many of them, and he’s recently been joined on the back pages by Yves Bissouma and Sander Berge.

Martinelli reflects on Sheffield United success 0

For many months now fans have been excited about the potential of Gabriel Martinelli. Unfortunately, due to various injuries, he hasn’t quite been able to showcase what he’s capable of on a consistent basis.

The youngster did manage to get back into the starting XI over the weekend for the game against Sheffield United, which marked his first start since January. As the Gunners ran out 3-0 winners it was Alexandre Lacazette who seemed to steal the show, and while that was well deserved, many seemed to forget that Martinelli also got in on the act with a really strong outing – and a goal to round things off.

Arsenal knew they had to make some kind of statement last night as they went up against a Sheffield United side who are just kind of waiting for their relegation to the Championship to be confirmed. The Gunners were the clear favourites but they certainly took a while to get going and get into any kind of rhythm, although they did come out on top in a 3-0 win that seemed to flatter them a bit.

After the game, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about his team’s performance.

Arsenal are in a “backs against the wall” type of situation right now in the Premier League, to the point where every single game between now and the end of the season is going to be vital. The Gunners can’t really afford to drop too many more points if they’re serious about pursuing a place in the top six, and while Sheffield United may be bottom of the table, they shouldn’t be underestimated.

Prior to the game, Arsenal.com has provided fans with the following information regarding some updated team news as the countdown to kickoff continues.

Arteta looks ahead to Sheffield United game 0

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta knows that a top six spot in the Premier League could so easily slip away from the Gunners over the course of the next few weeks. If they want that bleeding to stop then they really do need to get their act together, and that starts with a huge game against Sheffield United.

Before the game, Arteta spoke with the media to address any lingering concerns that fans may have as they gear up for a United side with almost nothing left to lose.

Two Arsenal games rescheduled 0

Arsenal’s season has been full of many twists and turns and as we look ahead to the immediate future, you’d have to think that trend will continue for a few more months to come. The Gunners have been to the highest highs and the lowest lows in a campaign that has allowed them to grow and develop – and also take a few steps back from time to time.

As confirmed by Arsenal.com, we can probably still expect a few fixture changes over the course of the last few weeks and months given how many different competitions are still ongoing.
