Aaron Ramsdale made the move to North London to join Arsenal for 25 million this season. The English goalkeeper’s move to Arsenal came under severe criticism due to his performances in the past. Aaron Ramsdale has previously played for AFC Bournemouth and Sheffield United in the Premier League. However, his experience in the Premier League with the two clubs did not end well. His experience in the Premier League ended with relegation for Bournemouth and Sheffield.
His performances for Bournemouth and Sheffield attracted a lot of criticism. He did not perform at the highest level and leaked in several goals. Several pundits claimed that he is at best a Championship level player. However, Mikel Arteta and Arsenal’s board vested their faith in him and signed him for 25 million to replace Bernd Leno.
Aaron Ramsdale’s redemption:
Aaron Ramsdale has been brilliant since signing for Arsenal. Arguably, he has been the best keeper in the Premier League this season and saved several points for Arsenal this season. He has kept 11 clean sheets for Arsenal this season in only 20 appearances. His performances have seen him win an England call-up and a first England cap. He has silenced his critics on the field and certainly proved that he belongs to the Premier League for years to come.
A potential number 1 for England in the future, Ramsdale has certainly redeemed himself and put his career back on track.
Ramsdale’s Competition :
Arsenal have signed US international Matt Turner to add competition to the goalkeeper’s spot. Bernd Leno is all set to leave and hence Turner has been bought to reinforce the squad.
Matt Turner is widely regarded among the States and has made 16 appearances for the US national team. Turner is known for bringing passion to the team. Turner is a goalkeeper who wears his heart on his sleeve and vocal. After disposing of Zack Steffen as US’s number 1, Turner will hope to push Ramsdale and win the number 1 spot at Arsenal.
