Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is not thinking about leaving the Emirates despite interest from Chelsea.

According to 90min, Chelsea are monitoring Aaron Ramsdale’s situation in north London, but the 25-year-old is not contemplating departing his club.

He was recently dropped for Arsenal’s 1-0 win against Everton in the Premier League, with David Raya coming in to take his place.

However, it does not seem like Ramsdale is looking to leave the Gunners just yet.

If Raya remains in goal, though, it could be something to keep an eye on.

Aaron Ramsdale does not need to be a priority for Chelsea right now

Is Ramsdale a good goalkeeper? Yes, he is, with Ben Foster even hailing him as a “world-class” No.1.

Still, the Arsenal man does not need to be at the top of Chelsea’s list at this moment in time. They have just bought Robert Sanchez, while Mauricio Pochettino has problems in other areas of his squad.

Up front, for example, the Argentine is without a consistent No.9. Addressing that has to take precedence over everything else.

Next summer, if Ramsdale wants to leave Arsenal and Sanchez has lost Pochettino’s trust by that point, then it is a different story. But for now, the club should be working on bringing in a new striker.

At the end of the day, scoring goals is what wins you games and Chelsea are just not doing that at the moment. Signing Ramsdale will not fix that, so that should not be on their mind at this moment in time.
