Some fans are stunned as club suffer 4-0 loss as their 'best player' closes in on Arsenal move

Arsenal fans are stunned on social media as Sheffield United lost 4-0 to West Brom with Aaron Ramsdale on the verge of signing for the Gunners.

The England international is close to joining the north London club as reported by the Athletic. Arsenal will pay £24m up-front for Ramsdale with add-ons potentially taking the deal up to £30m.

The former AFC Bournemouth star will likely become the Gunners’ fifth signing of the window with Martin Odegaard also close to joining Arsenal. The north London side will take their summer spending past the £100m mark.
