Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano insists star is “not out of the Arsenal project” despite transfer links

Posted by

Fabrizio Romano has provided an exclusive update on the situation surrounding Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, with the reporter insisting that the England international is not out of the project at the Emirates Stadium.

Writing in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, Romano responded to the recent transfer rumours involving Ramsdale and possible interest from Chelsea and Bayern Munich, with the journalist seeming unconvinced by the stories.

Ramsdale was surprisingly left out of the Arsenal starting line up for the weekend trip to Everton, with summer signing David Raya impressing as he kept a clean sheet on his debut.

The Spanish shot-stopper is currently on loan at Arsenal from Brentford, but few would be surprised if he ended up being the long-term number one in Mikel Arteta’s side.

Romano, however, insists that the plan remains for Ramsdale and Raya to compete with each other to be first choice in Arteta’s starting XI this season.

“Aaron Ramsdale – There’s been some speculation about Aaron Ramsdale being monitored by Chelsea and Bayern Munich, but I’m not aware of concrete talks at this stage,” Romano said.

“Bayern signed Peretz, Chelsea signed two goalkeepers this summer… for January, the situation is just absolutely quiet. The plan is for Ramsdale to compete with David Raya – he’s not out of the Arsenal project.”

  1. I wonder what the hoopla is all about.
    With Champions league, FA cup, carabao cup competitions in prospect this season, both goalkeepers should feature at least 20 times and give the team an opportunity to progress far in each of these competitions. This will keep them sharp and fresh all season.
    Obviously, treating any competition as inferior, is outdated.
    Good luck to the Arsenal tomorrow.

  2. Well a lot of talk continue happening in Facebook and others website concerning Aaron Ramsdale the Arsenal goal keeper was not seeing on 17/09/2023, went Arsenal play away against Everton at Goodison park stadium, while they are expecting to see A’aron rather they David Raya on post for the Gunners. I said something here loudly that you cannot use two goal keeper at a time only one and Arsenal have champion league play, that’s why the coach decide to rest him to face the visitor on Wednesday evening at Emirate stadium while A’aron Ramsdale will be back on post for first time.
