Arsenal’s attempts to buy Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale this summer have apparently been shelved due to the Blades’ refusal to lower their £30 million asking price. The Gunners are looking for a new goalkeeper to compete with current No. 1 Bernd Leno, and have identified the 23-year-old England international as a possible candidate.
Arsenal, on the other hand, were quoted £30 million by the Championship club, who only signed Ramsdale from Bournemouth for £18.5 million in the summer of 2020.
According to The Sun, the Gunners have withdrawn from talks entirely because they are unwilling to meet Ramsdale’s asking price.
As a result, Mikel Arteta will have to look for a new goalkeeper elsewhere, and the club has informed Ramsdale that they are moving on to other prospects. Ramsdale is said to be ‘gutted’ at the deal falling through, as he now faces a season in the Championship.
