Aaron Ramsdale Limits Comments After Receiving Abuse From Angry Arsenal Fans

Aaron Ramsdale has been forced to limit comments on his Instagram feed after being met with a barrage of abuse from Arsenal fans.

The Sheffield United goalkeeper is on the verge of signing for the Gunners, where he will compete with Bernd Leno for the No.1 shirt.

Sheff United were initially holding out for £40 million for Ramsdale but David Ornstein of The Athletic is reportedly the fee be an initial £24 million that could rise to £30 million depending on performance-related bonuses.

Mikel Arteta is high on Ramsdale and had identified the 23-year-old as a main target this summer.

But plenty of Arsenal fans are anything but enthused by the transfer. In fact, many took to the comments section of Ramsdale's social media and subjected him to vile remarks.

The former Bournemouth man actually hasn't posted since the Euro 2020 final five weeks ago but has now limited who can reply to him.

It comes after Ramsdale was told to "Burn in motherf***ing hell you piece of s***, stay far away from Arsenal."

He was also called "a blonde inbred", a "fraud" and another troll sickeningly wrote: "F*** off man. We don't want you at

Arsenal. Trust me you'll be getting abuse every day."

Now, when you go on to Ramsdale's comments it is made up of a slew of verified accounts, including many of his England teammates, due to the comment limiting feature being activated.

Fortunately, the Arsenal fans abusing seem to be in the minority as many have condemned the messages sent and displayed support for their imminent new signing.

Left out of Sheff United's 4-0 defeat to West Brom on Wednesday night, Ramsdale is expected to sign a four-year contract with the option of a fifth.

He is set to follow Brighton's Ben White, Anderlecht's Albert Sambi Lokonga and Benfica left-back Nuno Tavares in moving to the Emirates, while Martin Odegaard is joining on a permanent deal from Real Madrid following last season's loan deal.
