Aaron Ramsdale ‘can become one of the best’ goalkeepers in the country, claims former team-mate Asmir Begovic… amid Arsenal interest in the Sheffield United and England star
- Arsenal are planning to make a move for the £30million-rated Blades player
- Current Gunners No 1 Bernd Leno could be ditched by manager Mikel Arteta
- And Ramsdale’s team-mate at Bournemouth backed him to become a great
Aaron Ramsdale has the ability to become one of the best goalkeepers in the country, Asmir Begovic has claimed.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international, 34, – who signed on a free transfer for Everton this month – played alongside Ramsdale at Bournemouth for several seasons.
And Begovic told Talksport that the 23-year-old Sheffield United star has lots of room to improve in future.

Sheffield United goalkeeper Ramsdale was part of England’s squad at Euro 2020 this summer
He said: ‘He can become one of the best, especially in the country.
‘He’s already proved that he can play at the highest level. He’s got a lot of potential still to fulfil.
‘The more he plays, the more he’s going to progress. So I’m not surprised to see him linked with some of the top clubs.
And his former Bournemouth team-mate Begovic (pictured) hailed Ramsdale’s potential
‘What he’s done over the last couple of years shows everyone the quality he has. With his age, where he’s at, the potential is there to become an even better goalkeeper.’
Ramsdale has been relegated for two seasons running for Bournemouth and then Sheffield United, but won Player of the Year for both clubs despite their demotions from the Premier League.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is keen to provide competition for current No 1 Bernd Leno, with deputy Alex Runarsson linked with a loan move away.
