Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly eyeing Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale as a potential solution to their goalkeeping concerns, with Ramsdale seeking regular playing time after falling down the pecking order at the Emirates.

Ramsdale, who had initially been Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper, saw his position usurped by loanee David Raya, prompting speculation about his future with the club. Wolves, who may be looking to move on from their current first-choice keeper Jose Sa, are considering a move for Ramsdale, according to sources.

The potential departure of Sa could be facilitated by his agent Jorge Mendes, who is well connected in football circles, particularly in Saudi Arabia, raising the prospect of a lucrative transfer that could fund Wolves’ pursuit of Ramsdale.

Reports suggest that Wolves have also identified Liverpool’s backup goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher and Sunderland’s Anthony Patterson as alternatives to Ramsdale.

Ramsdale has made only six Premier League appearances this season, with his lack of playing time potentially jeopardising his chances of featuring for England in the upcoming Euros.


Despite Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta previously indicated that Ramsdale and Raya were both considered as first-choice keepers, Raya has emerged as the preferred option, leaving Ramsdale on the fringes.

Speculation about Ramsdale’s future intensified in January, with Newcastle United among the clubs linked with the goalkeeper. However, Arteta has expressed his desire to retain both Ramsdale and Raya, stating, “I want Aaron with us. We want to be better, so we want to add to what we already have.”

The decision to demote Ramsdale from the starting lineup raised eyebrows, with his father criticising the handling of the situation earlier in the season. He expressed frustration with the lack of clarity regarding Ramsdale’s role within the team, suggesting that his son had been relegated to the role of cup goalkeeper without official confirmation.
