Sheffield United have turned down two offers from Arsenal for goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, according to reports in the UK.
The Gunners are actively pursuing the 23-year-old’s signature, as they look to provide competition for Bernd Leno, but the Blades have, so far, stood firm on their valuation of the player.
It is believed that the Yorkshire side will only sell Ramsdale this summer if a club are willing to pay around £32m for the shot-stopper. That is slightly less than double the £18.5m they spent on bringing the player back from Bournemouth last year.
Whether Arsenal will return with a third bid for the England international, it remains to be seen. The keeper is not thought to be ready to force a departure from Bramall Lane, which means United don’t have to worry about dealing with an unsettled player.
Ramsdale also has three years left on his contract so the Blades are under no pressure to sell for below their asking price.
