Some may doubt whether Arsenal will need to pay full £6 million in add-ons for Ramsdale after start to the season

Ramsdale is an intriguing signing for the Gunners. A look on social media would suggest that many simply cannot understand it.

Arsenal have several problems to address. So spending up to £30 million on Bernd Leno’s understudy is somewhat perplexing.

They certainly needed a new backup goalkeeper. And Ramsdale does boast serious potential.

But there look to be bigger concerns.

And in truth, Arsenal supporters would look at the reports and wonder whether they will even need to worry about paying the full £6 million.

Unfortunately, Arsenal look some way off meeting the requirements anyway.

They missed out on Europe last year. And the very, very early signs suggest that they have a huge amount of work to do this term.
