Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper, Brad Friedel has claimed that Aaron Ramsdale would eventually leave Arsenal at the end of the season after manager Mikel Arteta signed David Raya in the summer transfer window.
Arteta decided to start Raya in wins over Everton and PSV Eindhoven leading to question marks over Ramsdale’s future at Emirates.
Ramsdale has been Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper since his arrival in 2021.
But Arteta has insisted that he will be rotating between Ramsdale and Raya regularly but many speculate he has decided that the Spain international is his permanent No.1.
“I thought from the second they signed Raya, they signed him to be the new No.1, I don’t think you pay that much money for someone with one year left on their contract, I know he signed an extra contract and went on loan, but that was for other reasons,” Friedel said.
“It’s very harsh on Ramsdale but it is the coach’s decision. I’m assuming Ramsdale at the end of this season will end up having to do what Matt Turner did at the end of the previous season and find another place to play.”
