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.
Indeed, it has been a dramatic few hours for Ramsdale. Only last week, the deal to bring the keeper to Arsenal appeared to be dead in the water. But now, the youngster is set for a move to Arsenal.
And Sheffield United already appear to be missing their star keeper. The Blades took on West Brom in the Championship last night. And Slavisa Jokanovic’s side were blown away 4-0 by the Baggies.
It was a night to forget for Sheffield United. And on social media, Arsenal fans were stunned by the scoreline, even more so because Rasmdale was not in the squad that lost to West Brom.
Here’s what some Arsenal supporters had to say about Sheffield United’s 4-0 loss to West Brom on Twitter, with fans noting a lack of Ramsdale in the side…

Hope that 30 million is worth the hundreds of millions you’ll miss out on by not getting promoted. https://t.co/i5sWtFMzBL— Farteta FC (@saadfootballl) August 19, 2021
Ramsdale the one keeping the scoreline respectable, innit? 🤔 https://t.co/J4Wz8BF0Rp— Kplörla (@PrettyBoyKely) August 18, 2021
No Ramsdale effect https://t.co/5Ui6fl8B40— H (@HarryRiley96) August 18, 2021
Ramsdale is set to become one of the most expensive goalkeepers in the history of football following his move to Arsenal.
