Chelsea and Bayern Munich have been linked with a potential move for Aaron Ramsdale, but talk of ongoing negotiations has been played down.
The Daily Mail report that Aaron Ramsdale’s situation at Arsenal is interesting a number of teams, with Chelsea and Bayern Munich understood to be tracking developments.
Chelsea reportedly remain open to strengthening in goal despite their recent signings in the position, and Bayern are looking for a long-term successor to Manuel Neyer.
But the Mail add that Arsenal wouldn’t consider a January sale, and it would take offers in excess of £60m next summer to make the Gunners think.
Yet Fabrizio Romano reports that he’s not aware of any concrete talks with either Chelsea or Bayern Munich, and the situation is “absolutely quiet” for the January window.
Romano adds that the plan is for Ramsdale to compete with David Raya, and he’s not out of Mikel Arteta’s project.
Ramsdale signed a new four-year deal with Arsenal earlier in 2023, with an option to extend for an additional 12 months.
Assuming the Gunners want to hang onto Ramsdale, they could have him under contract until 2028.
Ramsdale has made five appearances for Arsenal this season, keeping one clean sheet against Crystal Palace. The goalkeeper also played for England over the international break, only losing his clean sheet to a Harry Maguire own goal.
With the return to the Champions League and the north London derby later this week, it will certainly be significant if Ramsdale doesn’t come back into the team for either match.
If he does, the talk of a transfer seems very premature.
