Arsenal player wants to stay at the Emirates 'for 15 years' and become a 'club legend'

He's loving his time at the club.

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale wants to stay at the Emirates for “15 years” and become a “club legend”.

The Gunners are currently at the Premier League summit, some five points clear of last season’s champions Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta’s side are now just 11 games from claiming their first league title in 19 years when Arsene Wenger led Arsenal to an unbeaten domestic season.

Goalkeeper Ramsdale has been central to the club's success since signing from Sheffield United in a £30million deal in 2021.

The England international’s impressive form this season led him to be named Goalkeeper of the Year at the London Football Awards on Monday evening.

Ramsdale wants to be an Arsenal legend

Speaking after picking up his London Football Award trophy Ramsdale made it clear that he wants to see out his playing career at Arsenal.

The 24-year-old explained, via BBC Sport London: “It was a difficult period moving club to club, even before that going on loan, I never imagined leaving Bournemouth after a year, I never imagined leaving Sheffield United after a year.

“But this is a place now where I can see myself for 10, 12, 15 years. That’s the aim, that’s the goal, that’s the aim to stay at the top for that amount of time.

“Hopefully, I’ll never have to leave and I’ll become a real hero and legend at this football club.”

When asked about Arteta’s influence on his Arsenal career, Ramsdale said: “From the first phone call, from the first day he said be yourself, you don’t need to be anybody who hides behind an image, or to shy away from speaking up in changing rooms.

“The first day I came in, thankfully I knew a few of the boys from previous clubs or England, so I was able to come in and joke straight away and people can see my character. It definitely allowed me to express myself on the pitch from the first game.”
