Although Mikel Arteta has made it clear he wants Aaron Ramsdale to stay at the club beyond the January transfer window, the Arsenal manager refused to rule out a potential departure in January.

The Arsenal number one has recently been dropped for new signing, David Raya at the beginning of this season. Ramsdale is yet to make his Champions League debut for the club, despite being a big reason why the Gunners find themselves back in the competition after a seven year absence.

Aaron Ramsdale is said to be weighing up his options ahead of the January transfer window, although Mikel Arteta insists he doesn’t want to lose the player, who is a very popular figure in the Arsenal dressing room, next month.

Mikel Arteta on Aaron Ramsdale: “I want Aaron with us. I am very happy to have two very very good goalkeepers and Aaron is staying with us.

“He’s willing to play. Like any player, he wants to play for Arsenal. That’s what he wants to do. Then the other is a consequence. And as well for England it’s not like he has started a lot of games, so hopefully we can help him be better here so then he can play for England.”

Despite this, the Spaniard refused to rule out the possibility of Ramsdale leaving in January, with Newcastle United the latest team to register their interest in the Arsenal keeper: “I won’t guarantee they’re going to stay with any player. Any player. I cannot tell you that any Arsenal player is not going to leave in January. Or he is to stay here for the next three years.

“I won’t say that no player is going to go to Newcastle. Or no member of the staff either. I won’t say it. If you say yes or no, I won’t say it.

“The answer is no for any player. I won’t say for any player. No player or the staff I cannot guarantee to be leaving in January. I cannot guarantee that nobody is going to be leaving in January. For Newcastle or any other club. So it is a no.”
