No rush Ramsdale

Mikel Arteta has warned Aaron Ramsdale not to rush any decision over his future and sent a warning to any clubs chasing the goalkeeper’s signature.

England manager Gareth Southgate told Ramsdale he could not promise him a place in his Euro 2024 squad if he remains on the bench at Arsenal.

It comes amid links with a move away from the Gunners, with Chelsea one of the clubs reportedly interested.

Arteta says he hasn’t spoken to Ramsdale but warned against a January move in a quest to find first-team football.

“First of all my door is open to speak about any player,” he said.

“We just want the best for our players and we try to do that, and we know the influence that we can have – sometimes positively, sometimes not so positively, towards them.

“We will always try to do our best to help them, but this is a team sport that needs 24 players that have to fulfil a role. And the role that you have in August, it might be very different to the one you have in March.

“So making early decisions, in my experience, is not something good at all and as well because the team has certain needs that has to be accomplished. And in order to do that you cannot do it with six, 10 or 14 players. It is impossible. So you need everyone and Aaron has a really important role in the team.

“I have no messages for any clubs [who may look to sign Ramsdale]. I can talk a little bit about my players, how much I like my players, how much I like Aaron and that we want Aaron with us, that’s for sure.”
