Chelsea makes surprise transfer move for Aaron Ramsdale from Arsenal following Robert Sanchez’s injury setback

Chelsea are in need of a backup goalkeeper after Robert Sanchez’s injury and they are now eyeing Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale. With the January window approaching, Mauricio Pochettino is looking to strengthen his squad and a goalkeeper is now on his wishlist. Ramsdale, who has been benched at Arsenal since the arrival of David Raya, is being targeted by Chelsea as they look to bolster their squad amid their struggle for results in the Premier League. Despite Mikel Arteta’s reluctance to let him leave, Chelsea and Newcastle are monitoring Ramsdale’s situation as they seek to secure his services. With just five league appearances this season, Ramsdale’s potential move to Chelsea could provide him with the opportunity for more game time.

In a blow to Chelsea, goalkeeper Robert Sanchez suffered an injury during their 2-0 defeat to Everton, prompting the Blues to intensify their pursuit of Arsenal keeper Aaron Ramsdale. With Sanchez now facing a period on the sidelines, Chelsea’s summer arrival Djordje Petrovic looks set to make his Premier League debut in their upcoming game against Sheffield United. However, Mauricio Pochettino is keen to bolster his squad in the January window, with a goalkeeper now a priority.

Struggling in the 12th position in the Premier League table with just five wins from their opening 16 games, Chelsea are eyeing Ramsdale as a solution to their goalkeeper woes. The 25-year-old Arsenal shot-stopper has been benched since the arrival of David Raya and has featured in just five of the Gunners’ 16 league matches. While Mikel Arteta is reluctant to let Ramsdale leave in the mid-season window, Chelsea and Newcastle are reportedly monitoring his situation. Ramsdale, who was signed by Arteta in 2021 for £30 million, has played 87 games for Arsenal, conceding 96 goals and keeping 32 clean sheets.
