Eventually, Arteta got his way.

It was the 39-year-old’s persistence and belief in Ramsdale’s quality which helped get the 23-year-old to north London.

In our view, it’s good to see that the manager got his way, as that’s how it should be.

The moment a manager is given players he doesn’t want, it sets a dangerous precedent.

Specifically, it’s great to see Arteta refuse another of Joorabchian’s clients, as they have been truly awful for the Gunners – Cedric and Willian are in his portfolio of footballers, for example.

Let’s see what the Arsenal fans on Twitter have been saying about The Athletic‘s revelation…
