West Ham should let Arsenal have free run at Aaron Ramsdale as surprise report emerges - opinion

West Ham have been linked with a move to sign Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale since March (Claret and Hugh). It now seems as though Arsenal have entered the race to sign the 23-year-old, rated at around £20 million (The Sun).

We think the Hammers should let the Gunners have a free run at the Blades stopper, however.

There are far better options out there for us.

David Moyes will be keen to bolster his goalkeeping ranks at the London Stadium over the course of the next 12 months or so.

Lukasz Fabiański is now 36 whilst his back-up Darren Randolph is 34.

Claret and Hugh recently claimed that Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale could be an option for West Ham.

The 23-year-old stopper got relegated with the Blades last season and it should be easy to prise him away from Bramall Lane.

West Ham should let Arsenal have free run at Ramsdale

The 23-year-old Blades stopper was hardly impressive in the Premier League last season.

Ramsdale conceded 63 goals in 38 league games and kept just five clean sheets all season long (Transfermarkt).

He was playing for the worst team in the league but nevertheless, he didn’t really cover himself in glory.

The former Bournemouth stopper made some glaring mistakes last season.

Ramsdale doesn’t seem to have the composure or coolness to make it as a top class goalkeeper at the very highest level.

Perhaps he will prove us wrong, who knows.

As things stand, however, we think that West Ham should let Arsenal have a free run at the £20 million rated stopper this summer.
