Newcastle to pursue Arsenal keeper Aaron Ramsdale this summer

Newcastle United are set to reignite their pursuit of Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, according to the Daily Mail.

Ramsdale was Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper for most of last season but made costly errors during the Premier League title run-in. Manager Mikel Arteta decided to pursue a new keeper.

Arsenal loaned David Raya from Brentford, and he has taken Ramsdale’s place, leaving the former Sheffield United star on the bench. 

The 25-year-old England international wants game time and is open to a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

Newcastle currently have Nick Pope and Martin Dubravka between the sticks and are looking for younger options.

Manager Eddie Howe knows Ramsdale from their time together at Bournemouth and would love to work with him again. 

The England international could move north, where he could become first-choice again. The Gunners are already preparing for his departure.

Arsenal are currently eyeing a move for Columbus Crew goalkeeper Patrick Schulte, although they face competition from Manchester United. 

Apart from the goalkeeping area, Newcastle desperately need to refresh their squad this summer.

They have been handicapped by Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR), which has prevented the Public Investment Fund (PIF) from filling the coffers with funds.

Newcastle must navigate the market delicately to avoid being sanctioned with point deductions.

They may need to sell stars like Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak to be able to fund moves to plug gaping holes in their squad.
