REVEALED: Aaron Ramsdale talks about surprise Arsenal signing

Aaron Ramsdale recently revealed on the The Fellas podcast that the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Man City last summer was a big surprise.

He noted that he was aware of Gabriel Jesus’ move to Arsenal from Manchester City but was caught off guard by the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Ramsdale told the pod, “It depends how much really, it depends on how well documented the transfer is. Gabriel Jesus basically, I knew 85-90 per cent he was coming to us. That’s just the case of social media doing its thing and kind of knowing the type of person the manager wants.”

He added that, “Zinchenko on the other hand, out of the blue. That gathered speed in about four days, it was literally like “Arsenal are interested in Man City star Zinchenko” from someone on Twitter, thought nothing of it, you hear all sorts. Two days later the deal is agreed, three days later he was meeting the team.

“He’s a player that gives us everything we want in that position, and gives us versatility.

“He gets a lot of attention as well and fills a lot of spaces, and that for us is really important.

“I would especially highlight his mentality; what he has brought is a real desire to win and make something special with this team, and the experiences that he’s had in the past are very helpful for us to do that.”
