Wolverhampton Wanderers lining up summer move for Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale

Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen on signing Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale during the summer transfer window, according to the Sun.

The Midlands club are open to selling Portuguese goalie Jose Sa amid continued interest from the Saudi Pro League, with his agent Jorge Mendes close to its transfer power brokers.

As a result, Wolves are expected to demand top dollar for the 31-year-old to ‘fund shock transfer’ for Ramsdale.

The Arsenal star has been relegated to the bench since the arrival of David Raya on loan from Brentford last summer and is set to leave for greener pastures in the next transfer window.

Ramsdale’s international career has been dealt a huge blow as a result of the goalkeeping shake-up at the North London club, and there are no guarantees he will be included in the final squad for the European Championship this summer.

Leaving Arsenal for Wolves could be a huge boost for his future with the Three Lions as it will allow him to continue fighting for the starting berth in the national team after the lack of regular time this term dealt a massive blow on his chances of pipping his Everton counterpart Jordan Pickford to a place in Gareth Southgate’s XI.

Ramsdale will not be short of suitors in the summer, but only a move to a club where he is guaranteed a place in the starting line-up will appeal to him.

He is still capable of being a number 1 for most Premier League and top European sides despite manager Mikel Arteta opting for someone better with the ball at his feet, and Arsenal will unlikely stand in his way if he expresses an interest to leave.

Ramsdale was a key player for the Gunners after he became the first choice ahead of Bernd Leno following his arrival from Sheffield United in a £30 million deal in the summer of 2021, but both parties are now set to part ways in the coming months.
