Arsenal will offer a contract extension to England goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of the season.
Ramsdale joined Arsenal last season from Championship side Sheffield United in a deal worth £30 million including add-ons on a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year.
His contract will expire in the summer of 2025 and Arsenal wants to reward his brilliant season with an improved terms to reflect his status as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
The 24-year old England international is reportedly on a 62k-a-week and will likely double his wages with an extension, which will keep him at the club until at least 2030.
Many questioned Mikel Arteta’s decision to sign the former Bournemouth goalkeeper but he has proved to be a smart signing for the Gunners after replacing Bernd Leno as first choice last season.
The growth of this Arsenal team, which now plays a style of football more in line with Arteta’s philosophy, has been greatly aided by Ramsdale’s skill with the ball and his ability to command his area.
Arsenal are top of the Premier League table with six points ahead of Manchester City and Ramsdale has been outstanding for the Gunners with incredible saves to keep his side ahead.
His brilliance denied Liverpool a late win on Sunday when he saved from Darwin Nunez, Mohammed Salah and Ibrahima Konate to earn Arsenal a point at Anfield.
After the game at Anfield, football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano tweeted:
“Ramsdale, included in Arsenal list of players who will be offered a new long term contract after Saka & Martinelli.”
Gabriel Martinelli was the first among Arsenal stars to put pen to paper on a new long-term deal in February while Bukayo Saka is set to become the highest earner in the club when he signs a new long term contract worth £300,000-per-week.
Arsenal have also offered improved terms to defender William Saliba while his partner Gabriel Magalhães has already signed a new contract until 2027.
The league leaders will also reward Granit Xhaka with an extension that will keep him at the club until 2025.
