Premier League Club Preparing Shock Move for Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale to Replace Outgoing Keeper, Club Showing Strong Interest

Aaron Ramsdale, new contract, Wolves

According to reports in England, Wolves are preparing a shock move for out-of-favour Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in the upcoming transfer window. The Midlands club are set to sell current keeper Jose Sa this summer amidst interest from Saudi Arabia and have marked the Englishman as his replacement.

Wolverhampton Wanderers signed Jose Sa from Greek club Olympiacos in 2021 replacing Rui Patricio. He joined on a five-year contract, making his PL debut in a 1-0 loss away to Leicester City in August 2021. Since moving to the Molineux, he has been a consistent performer and the first-choice keeper for the club.

The Portuguese made his 100th appearance for Wolves in a 4-2 away win against Chelsea on 4 February 2024. However, in recent weeks, he has attracted interest from the Saudi League and a summer move looks imminent. Therefore, the club have also started looking for his replacement.

According to The Sun, Wolves are lining up a shock move for out-of-favour Arsenal shot-stopper Aaron Ramsdale this summer. The Midlands club’s search for Jose Sa’s replacement has brought them to North London and have identified the English keeper as a potential target.

The Portuguese goalkeeper is getting quite lucrative offers from the Saudi Pro League and has shown interest in joining a Middle East club. His agent Jorge Mendes has close ties with some Saudi clubs and there are high chances that the 31-year-old will move to the Saudi League this summer.

Wolves are prepared to sell Jose Sa in the upcoming summer transfer window, but they want a handsome price for their first-choice keeper. That will, in turn, allow Gary O’Neil’s side to acquire the services of the England international from Arsenal.

Ramsdale has featured only in 11 matches this campaign across all competitions, including a mere 6 appearances in the Premier League. The shot-stopper is not at all happy with the lack of playing time at the club and there are reports of him looking for a new club, with Newcastle United also showing interest.

Until the end of the last season, the 25-year-old was the out-and-out first choice between the posts for manager Mikel Arteta. He put in consistent performances for the club, even bailing out the team on many occasions. The Englishman proved his worth and became a fan favourite in no time.

However, since the arrival of David Raya from Brentford at the beginning of the 2023-24 season, the England international has found himself pushed down the pecking order. He has been pushed into a secondary role, receiving very few appearances and even less game-time.

This has prompted Aaron Ramsdale to look for an exit and move to a club with regulate game-time, which has caught the attention of Wolves. Other than the English keeper, the club are also keeping an eye on Liverpool’s Caoimhin Kelleher and Sunderland’s Anthony Patterson.

Only time will tell which player the Midlands club will sign in the summer transfer window. Jose Sa has been a reliable performer for the side, whose exit can be properly addressed only by bringing in a quality replacement, like Ramsdale.

Meanwhile, the North Londoners have also begun searching for a replacement if the 25-year-old decides to leave this summer. They have identified Patrick Schulte of Columbus Crew and Athletico Paranaense shot-stopper Bento as potential targets to replace Ramsdale.
