Since Raya’s loan arrival from Brentford, Arsenal’s goalkeeping scenario has seen a shift, with the usurpation of Ramsdale from the coveted number one spot. 

Despite Ramsdale’s notable achievements and past performances, Raya’s emergence has prompted discussions about Ramsdale’s future, especially with reported interest from Newcastle.

Arteta’s Perspective

Manager Mikel Arteta expressed his desire to retain Ramsdale, emphasizing the importance of having two top-tier goalkeepers. He affirmed Ramsdale’s continued presence at Arsenal, outlining the club’s intention to enhance their squad further.

Reports suggest that Newcastle, under the management of Eddie Howe—who previously signed Ramsdale for Bournemouth in 2017—are monitoring the situation closely.
