Arsenal eye dramatic return for former star to replace Aaron Ramsdale

With the summer transfer window fast approaching, it’s a bittersweet feeling for Arsenal fans. On the one hand, this presents a great opportunity to strengthen the squad with new additions, but on the other hand, Aaron Ramsdale’s days in an Arsenal shirt are limited.

The England shot-stopper who has proven to be one of Mikel Arteta’s biggest signings so far has fallen down the pecking order due to David Raya’s great form. It’s not his fault and he remains a popular figure in the Arsenal camp, making it an emotional farewell when it inevitably happens.

Indeed, three Premier League clubs are currently eyeing Aaron Ramsdale, so there is no shortage of interested clubs.

But what does Aaron Ramsdale’s departure mean for Arsenal? Of course, this departure will be an emotional departure for fans, but the recruiting team also needs to think about who they will bring in as their replacement.

Karl Hein is currently Arsenal’s third goalkeeper but he does not have the experience needed if called upon. Therefore, someone needs to replace Aaron Ramsdale on the bench.

According to a report from Standard, Arsenal are considering a monumental return for former Arsenal goalkeeper and academy graduate Wojciech Szczesny.

The Poland international needs no introduction to Arsenal fans. For many years, five to be precise, Szczesny was Arsenal’s first choice goalkeeper.

When he left the academy, he embodied everything the club was about. He has had many great moments on and off the pitch, winning the FA Cup twice, the Community Shield and the Premier League Golden Glove. Off the pitch, he took part in trolling Tottenham fans alongside Jack Wilshere. This will ALWAYS be noted in Arsenal fans’ books.

Since leaving for Juventus in 2017, Szczesny has won Serie A three times and become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

Aged 34 and soon entering the final year of his contract with Juventus, it is logical that the Old Lady could consider a sale this summer. For Szczesny, it would be a fairytale end to his career to retire at the club he founded.

However, Szczesny is capable of starting every match at the highest level. He has started all but two Serie A matches this season. If he joined Arsenal, Arteta would value Raya over his former teammate. So it comes down to whether or not Szczesny values ​​his playing time at the end of his playing career.

Do you think Arsenal should re-sign Wojciech Szczesny?
