An Arsenal goalkeeper who has fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta could be of interest to Chelsea, to replace the struggling Robert Sanchez.

Chelsea came up against Arsenal in the Premier League at the weekend and it was a tale which was decided by one factor – Awful goalkeeping. On both sides, the Spanish goalkeepers David Raya and Robert Sanchez let their sides down, which ultimately resulted in a 2-2 draw.

From the home side’s perspective, they are growing frustrated with their new signing’s performances between the sticks. It’s important to note that this isn’t the only game where he has let the side down.

Despite only having a few months to prove himself, it’s not a completely un-Chelsea thing to do to replace a player after only a few matches. After all, they’re a carousel club who only sign players that are trending, not based on a long-term plan or anything of the like.

According to a report by the Daily Mail, Chelsea are ready to test Arsenal’s resolve to sign Aaron Ramsdale. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Mikel Arteta, who is a big fan of Ramsdale, will allow him to leave midway through the season, particularly to a London rival.

Ramsdale has become second-favourite to the aforementioned summer signing David Raya. Despite helping the Gunners to qualify for the Champions League, he is even second fiddle in this competition, contrary to what some would have thought when Raya became a domestic regular.

In the next Premier League match, Arsenal comes up against Ramsdale’s former club Sheffield United. He’ll be hoping to be involved in this match although if he isn’t, he’ll remain professional and be supportive of his teammates.
