6686_The Arsenal goalkeeper situation has sparked a debate among football pundits. Gabriel Agbonlahor believes that Aaron Ramsdale should consider leaving the club due to Mikel Arteta’s preference for David Raya as the number one choice between the posts.
Agbonlahor draws a parallel between Ramsdale’s predicament and Dean Henderson’s situation at Manchester United. If Ramsdale does not get regular playing time, he risks losing his place in the England squad for EURO 2024. The former English player expressed his opinion:
“I can’t imagine any goalkeeper of Ramsdale’s age accepting to be the second-choice option. He will have to move on because Raya will be the number one from now on.”
In Arteta’s eyes, Raya is a highly valued player.
“Henderson had to leave Manchester United, and this is a similar case. It will be very frustrating for Ramsdale because he hasn’t made any real mistakes in an Arsenal shirt. He will be thinking, ‘Why is this happening?'”
