Aaron Ramsdale could be rejected by Chelsea fans as Arsenal video resurfaces amid transfer reports

Aaron Ramsdale could be rejected by Chelsea fans after a video re-emerged of the shot-stopper taunting the Blues faithful.

On Monday it was claimed that Chelsea are lining up a move for Arsenal keeper Ramsdale after the goalkeeper was dropped by Mikel Arteta.

Ramsdale made way for new Gunners shot-stopper David Raya for Arsenal’s win over Everton, with the Spaniard keeping a clean sheet during the 1-0 victory at Goodison Park.

The decision to sign Raya has increased speculation when it comes to who Arteta’s No.1 will be for the remainder of the season.


And according to the Mail Online Chelsea could take advantage of the goalkeeping uncertainty at the Emirates.

While Mauricio Pochettino only signed first-choice keeper Robert Sanchez this summer, the opportunity to sign Ramsdale from their London rivals could reportedly prove too good an opportunity to turn down.

The publication claimed a January move is unlikely, but Arsenal could be tempted to sell in the summer should they receive a bid in the region of £60million.

Should Chelsea make a move for Ramsdale, the keeper will have to work to win over the Chelsea faithful.


Last season, the keeper, known for his eccentricities, was spotted sarcastically waving and mocking the Blues fans after Bukayo Saka secured Arsenal’s three points by netting a penalty in a 4-2 win.

The video can be seen below.


Bayern Munich, who are searching for a long-term Manuel Neuer successor, are also understood to be monitoring Ramsdale's situation, with the England international’s contract running until 2026.


Ramsdale, who signed for Arsenal from Sheffield United for £30m two years ago, has kept 30 clean sheets in 83 games for Arteta’s men.

Speaking on Sunday about the situation between Ramsdale and Raya, Arteta said: "No one is guaranteed a spot. I'm not guaranteed a spot. We're here to perform at the highest level and to contribute our best capacity to win games. It's no different for anyone.

"If we set ourselves those standards, no matter what happens externally it is not going to be bigger than that. That's the aim we have. I haven’t had a single question on why Gabriel Jesus hasn’t started.

"He (Jesus) has won more trophies than anybody else, including me, in that dressing room. But I cannot have two players in this position and don’t play them. David has tremendous qualities, like Aaron has, like Karl (Hein) has, but we have to use them. It is like this.


"I am a really young manager. I only have been three and a half years in the job and I have few regrets.

"One of them was that on two occasions I felt after 60 minutes and after 85 minutes, in two games in this period, to change the keeper at that moment and I didn’t do it. I didn’t have the courage to do it and I was so unhappy.

"Tell me why not do it. Why not. We have all the qualities in another goalkeeper to do something, something is happening and you want to change momentum.

"Do it. It is a regret that I had. And now my feeling is to get everyone engaged and in the team, they have to play regardless of the competition. That is my message."
