Aaron Ramsdale, no longer the first choice at Arsenal, could potentially move to Newcastle United in January, according to reports.
However, the Gunners’ asking price of £50 million for Ramsdale might be a deterrent for Newcastle. Despite being open to a move, Ramsdale is likely dissatisfied with his situation at the Emirates and, being in and around the England squad, he has Euro 2024 to consider.
Another player potentially heading to Newcastle is Aaron Ramsdale. The 25-year-old is no longer Arsenal’s first choice, and it’s unlikely he wants to remain as David Raya’s backup for an extended period. According to The Times, Ramsdale is reportedly willing to join Newcastle in January.
However, a significant hurdle exists – the Gunners are seeking £50 million for the goalkeeper, a price tag that might deter Newcastle.
Ramsdale’s openness to a move is unsurprising given his dissatisfaction with the current situation at the Emirates. Additionally, players in and around the England squad, like Ramsdale, have Euro 2024 considerations to take into account.
With the injury to Nick Pope, Newcastle need to secure a Premier League calibre shot-stopper, and it would also be beneficial for them to bring in somebody with Champions League experience.
Additionally, one of the main criticisms of Pope is that he isn’t the best with the ball at his feet – Ramsdale would certainly be an upgrade in that aspect.
