“He’s a Kia class player and i don’t understand why Arteta keeps using him in every match. If he continues this way, Manchester United might even catch up with Arsenal”- Arsenal icon Ian Wright slams £25M Arsenal hero and claims he will have no chance of starting even at Tottenham hotspur
In a recent assessment of Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale’s standing among Premier League clubs, former Arsenal star Ian Wright and talkSPORT pundit Darren Bent provided insights into the shot-stopper’s potential role in other top-tier teams, specifically Tottenham Hotspur.
As Ramsdale’s status shifted from the initial season’s first-choice goalkeeper to David Raya taking the helm between the posts, speculation arises regarding the permanency of Raya’s loan deal from Brentford. Amidst this backdrop, Darren Bent, an ardent Arsenal fan, expressed sympathy for Ramsdale’s situation. Bent acknowledged Ramsdale’s potential to secure a starting position at other clubs, citing Chelsea and Newcastle United as potential destinations where the goalkeeper could feature prominently.
While Bent believes Ramsdale could find starting opportunities at various Premier League clubs, he hesitates to include Tottenham Hotspur in that list. Bent, in his assessment on talkSPORT, indicated that Ramsdale might not have a chance of displacing Guglielmo Vicario as the first-choice goalkeeper for Tottenham. The former Spurs striker praised Vicario, the Italian goalkeeper who joined Tottenham during the summer transfer window, highlighting his stellar performances as one of the standout players for the North London club this season.
Bent’s sentiments reflect a nuanced perspective on Ramsdale’s potential destinations and the competition he would face. The talkSPORT pundit acknowledged Ramsdale’s suitability for certain clubs but underscored the exceptional quality of Vicario, deeming him “different class” and “unbelievable.”
The evolving dynamics of goalkeeping roles and the fluid nature of player transitions in the football landscape add an intriguing layer to Ramsdale’s future prospects. As discussions about permanency at Arsenal and potential moves unfold, Ramsdale’s journey continues to be a focal point of interest among football enthusiasts and pundits alike.
