Kieran Tierney believes Arsenal have made a 'brilliant' signing
Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney has lauded Gunners goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, in conversation with Fantasy Premier League.
Edu and Mikel Arteta signed the 23-year-old from Sheffield United in the summer for a reported £30million.
Ramsdale’s arrival at the Emirates Stadium was met with a mixed reception by the Arsenal fanbase.
Some questioned his credentials in wake of back-to-back relegations with Bournemouth and the Blades.
Others, meanwhile, wondered whether £30million on an apparent back-up goalkeeper was worth it.
Less than a year earlier, Arsenal controversially sold Emiliano Martinez.
He subsequently starred for Aston Villa and won the Copa America with Argentina.
Meanwhile, Runar Alex Runarsson struggled after joining from Dijon, prompting Arsenal to bring Mat Ryan in on loan.
However, it only took a couple of weeks for Ramsdale to displace Bernd Leno in between the Arsenal sticks.
In six Premier League appearances for Arsenal, Ramsdale has kept three clean sheets and conceded just four goals.
And Tierney is delighted with what the England Euro 2020 squad member has brought to London Colney and the Emirates Stadium.
“He’s been brilliant,” the Scotland international said on Fantasy Premier League.
“Everyone can see how good he’s been. He’s brought good energy, good motivation to the team as well, so I think he’s been a great signing.”
