Hammers could move for Blades star

West Ham could make a move for keeper Aaron Ramsdale this summer if Sheffield United are relegated from the Premier League.

The Blades have lost 21  from 26 league games this season and remain bottom of the table and are now 15 points from safety. With only 12 matches left to play, for Wilder’s side to turn it around from here and stay up would be nothing short of remarkable.

Jurgen Klopp labelled Aaron Ramsdale ‘incredible’ for his performance during Sheffield United’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday evening.

The Blades No.1 was in fine form during the first half of their latest defeat with the 22-year-old thwarting Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in the first half as he threatened to single-handedly keep the Reds out.

It prompted Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness to say “he is making saves he is not entitled to make” during the half-time interval before goals from Curtis Jones and Kean Bryan (OG) confirmed a 21st defeat of the season for the Blades.

West Ham would not be alone in a potential approach for any potential Blades fire sale.

  1. Wow that’s a strange one.
    Aaron has looked lost for much of the season and has really only looked like a decent keeper in the last few games. His ability to come for, and catch, crosses has been an issue, again improved recently, but having made several key errors earlier this season I would suggest “making saves he has no right to make” should be “making up for the saves he should have made previously” especially in games we would otherwise have got something out of.
    Aaron’s a great lad and young enough to develop into a very fine keeper over time, but I’m really not sure if he’s right for you lot, not right now.


  3. I’ve been wrong on Dawson and Lingard so if this is who Moyes wants then fair enough. Was hoping we might pursue Henderson or Pope instead though. That said Ramsdale is very young but already has a couple of seasons experience at this level so hopefully would only improve.

    To be honest I thought we might just sign whoever the Slavia Prague keeper is.

  4. I think this reported interest is bewildering, one of the reasons Sheff are going to be relegated is that they did not keep their keeper from last season. He would be a truly terrible signing, has no stature and does not command his box. Not a patch on Fab.

  5. Sam Johnstone ahead of Ramsdale. If WBA are relegated he will likely want at transfer. He is strong and would play well behind the defence we have.

  6. This would be an absolute disaster. The amount of goals I’ve seen him concede because he parrys the ball back into the danger zone is staggering. He’s like Chris Kirkland…. whichever team he plays for they’ll be in a relegation scrap. He just concedes too many goals.

  7. Any goalie we go for will surely still be a no. 2 or 3 pick. Displacing David Martin and Nathan Trott? Fab is still doing a great job between the sticks, and Randolph has held his own well enough so far. If anything I’d have thought we’d be pushing Trott harder, he’s only 22/23, I suspect the next signing would be his competition.
