Report: Arsenal plan bid for 'incredible' £40m-valued player, but they haven't got long
Arsenal are reportedly planning to submit another bid for Aaron Ramsdale.
And the Gunners are racing against time as he could potentially become cup-tied by next week.
Arsenal have reportedly made two offers for Ramsdale already, but Sheffield United have rejected them both.
However, football.london claims the Gunners will try once again as they seek to bring in competition for Bernd Leno.
This is unlikely to be near the £30million fee that has been reported, they added.
According to Peter O’Rourke, the Blades apparently value Ramsdale at a massive £40million.
And next Tuesday, Sheffield United are due to play Carlisle United in the Carabao Cup first round.
If Ramsdale features, that would leave him cup-tied for the rest of the competition this season.
Given the 6ft 2in stopper would likely be restricted to cup matches with Arsenal, this would stop them from using him in those games.
Therefore, Edu must act fast if he wants Ramsdale to come in and play in the cups.
Can Arsenal land “incredible” goalkeeper?
Ramsdale has made 44 appearances for Sheffield United since joining them from Bournemouth in 2020.
Ramsdale was the Blades’ player of the season despite the club dropping into the Championship.
The same was the case in his final season at Bournemouth in 2019-20, when the Cherries fell into the second tier.
Jurgen Klopp deemed Ramsdale “incredible” after Liverpool beat Sheffield United 2-0 in March.
“Ramsdale played an incredible game, few outstanding saves,” Examiner Live quoted the Reds boss as saying.
