'Great move for him': Pundit thinks £30m ace linked with Arsenal would relish joining Gunners
Arsenal are reportedly looking to sign Aaron Ramsdale as competition for Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
And TalkSPORT pundit Trevor Sinclair reckons it would be a “great move” for the 23-year-old.
However, he also feels Arsenal should’ve never got to this point by selling Emiliano Martinez.
TalkSPORT reported on Wednesday afternoon that the Gunners were plotting a £30million bid for Ramsdale.
“I’m told they’ve already had two bids rejected for the former Bournemouth goalkeeper and they are lining up a third,” said Alex Crook.
Last year, Arsenal sold Martinez for a reported £20million, a decision which looks dreadful in hindsight.
The Argentine was incredible for Aston Villa and then went on to help his nation win the Copa America.
Arsenal selling Martinez: “Why?”
“Listen, I don’t get it,” Sinclair told talkSPORT on Wednesday.
“We’ve said before, Emi Martinez going to Villa – why? He was playing superbly well for Arsenal.
“They’ve allowed their best keeper to leave and now they are chasing their tail trying to get someone in to give competition for Leno.
“I just don’t understand how Arsenal is being run as a football club. For me, that Emi Martinez one should have never gone through.
“I know he wanted to play, but let those two goalkeepers play it out for the No.1 jersey and keep it honest.
“They’ve not done it and they’ve let him go and he has been superb at Villa.
“I think for Aaron Ramsdale, that will be a great move for him. It’s a huge club Arsenal and it is quite a big fee.”
Ramsdale has made 44 appearances for Sheffield United since joining them from Bournemouth in 2020.
He played in all 38 Premier League games for his club, but couldn’t prevent them from suffering relegation.
