Arsenal confident of signing Ramsdale

Arsenal are increasingly confident of signing Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and are preparing a decisive bid. The Gunners have already seen their initial offers rejected by United with the clubs owners reportedly valuing him at £35m.

The Sheffield Star now report that Arsenal are ready to lodge a decisive bid to secure the player.

According to their report, the Gunners will offer £28m which they believe will be accepted by their counterparts at Bramall Lane.

Its thought that despite the lower bid in relation to the clubs valuation, Arsenal will get their man, in part due to Ramsdale’s apparent desire to complete the switch.

Speaking last weekend, United manager Slavisa Jokanovic seemed to concede the 23-year-old had confirmed he wanted to hold face-to-face talks with Arteta – saying he “understands my position” and that “I understand his”.
