- Arsenal’s goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has signed a rewarding four-year contract extension.
- The new contract is understood to have doubled Ramsdale’s wages, now earning £120,000 per week.
- The goalkeeper’s impressive performance since his arrival in 2021 has made him a favourite among Arsenal fans.
Arsenal’s standout goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, has just committed his future to the Gunners with a four-year contract extension. The English shot-stopper, since his arrival in 2021, has continued to impress both on and off the pitch, leading to a significant upgrade in his earnings.
Ramsdale’s new contract is thought to have doubled his previous weekly wages, from £60,000 to a whopping £120,000. This lucrative deal, which comes with an additional year’s option, reflects the goalkeeper’s immense value to the North London club.
Since his £24 million transfer from Sheffield United in 2021, Ramsdale has quickly ingratiated himself with the Arsenal faithful. His consistent performances, remarkable saves, and engaging personality have endeared him to fans, making him one of the most popular figures at the Emirates.
“I feel your love, and I feel like you feel mine as well,” Ramsdale announced in a heartfelt address to the fans. His commitment to the club and passion for the game were evident as he expressed his gratitude for the faith and support he has received.
Manager Mikel Arteta has been particularly impressed with the 24-year-old’s performances. After a win over Newcastle, Arteta lauded Ramsdale, stating, “It has been a big jump for him, from where he was, to play at a club like Arsenal and with the standards that are required, but he has really improved in every aspect. I am really pleased with him.”
Ramsdale’s new contract follows an impressive tally of 70 appearances for Arsenal, solidifying the club’s defence and contributing to their resurgence as a top side in England. His Premier League contributions have been recognised at the international level too, earning him caps for England’s senior team.
The goalkeeper ended his address to fans on a hopeful note: “Let’s keep moving forward as a club and make some more special memories.” With his contract now sealed, fans and players alike will eagerly anticipate more such memories in the coming seasons.
The club also appears keen on securing their future by negotiating contracts with other key players. Notably, Bukayo Saka, another English international, is reportedly set for a new deal, expected to be announced soon. Similarly, the French centre-back William Saliba, who has significantly contributed to Arsenal’s robust defensive performances this season, is also in talks for an extension, as is Martin Odegaard.
