Arsenal are reportedly on the verge of signing Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in a deal worth around £24m.
The goalkeeper has been linked with a move to the Emirates in the past weeks, and it now seems a matter of hours before he signs under the dotted line.

The 23-year-old will cost Mikel Arteta‘s side an initial £24 million, with a possible further £6 million in potential add-ons.
He was left out of the Blades’ squad for their Wednesday night game against West Brom.
Ramsdale, a childhood supporter of the Blades is said to be pushing for a move, despite coach Slavisa Jokanovic making it clear he did not want the Englishman to leave.
