Arsenal fans will love what Jamie Carragher said about Aaron Ramsdale

Carragher on Ramsdale

Former Liverpool man Jamie Carragher has recently named who he believes has been the Premier League signing of the season so far.

The summer window once again saw a number of sides spend big, including Manchester City and Chelsea, who splashed lofty sums on Jack Grealish and Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United also brought in a trio of huge names in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.

However, it is actually Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale who Carragher has named as the PL signing of the season:

“I went for Ramsdale because it was almost the biggest surprise to me when they brought him in.

“I thought they would bring him in as back-up, and almost bring him in as an English player because of the quota.

“He hadn’t impressed me, certainly in his Premier League time at Sheffield United and Bournemouth. It’s not just the saves he’s made. He’s a personality and a character.

“Already to go into a dressing room at Arsenal, yes there are young players in there, but it’s still a huge club.

“Going into Arsenal as a young lad, a goalkeeper. I think he’s got a presence about him that I didn’t see that he had and I think he’s had a big impact on the team.”

Aaron Ramsdale impressing with Arsenal

Arsenal would bring in Ramsdale from now-Championship outfit Sheffield United over the summer.

The Englishman had previously not enjoyed the best of spells in the Premier League, with either Sheffield United or Bournemouth.

However, Ramsdale is still just 23 years of age, and full of potential. When the shot-stopper joined Arsenal, there was an expectation that he would play back-up to Bernd Leno.

And, for the first three league games of the season, this is what happened, with the German starting in the 2-0 loss to Brentford, 2-0 loss to Chelsea and 5-0 loss to Manchester City (Ramsdale had not yet signed for Arsenal at the time of the Brentford game).

But, following the Gunners’ awful start to the campaign, Mikel Arteta has since dropped Leno, and handed Ramsdale a chance to shine.

And, so far, the young shot-stopper has done exactly that. Ramsdale has kept an impressive nine clean sheets in 16 outings for Arsenal to date, with a number of Man of the Match displays sprinkled across those ties.
