Arsenal summer signing Aaron Ramsdale has been ‘incredible’ since joining the Gunners, according to former striker Kevin Campbell.

Mikel Arteta’s pursuit of Ramsdale raised eyebrows but the £30m signing has already replaced Bernd Leno as Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper and impressed for the north London outfit.

Ramsdale has kept three clean sheets in Arsenal’s last four Premier League fixtures and kept Brighton at bay on Saturday as Arteta’s side maintained their unbeaten run with a goalless draw.

‘This is the beautiful thing about football,’ Campbell told Football Insider. ‘At first, I didn’t pass judgement because I did not know enough about him.

‘Instead, I went away and did my research. Others made preconceptions about him because he was relegated with a couple of clubs.

‘It was held against him straight away. When people found out he was signing he received hate on social media.

‘He had to turn off his messages and comments and this was before he had even signed for the football club. Straight away fans are on his back even though he hadn’t done anything.

‘There was a pre-conceived idea that he was not good enough for Arsenal but let me tell you, that young man has impressed me as much as anyone they’ve signed.

‘I think he’s been incredible. Not just his saves and his distribution but the way he commands his box.

‘He is not afraid to give his defenders a rollicking. That is really important. I never saw [Bernd] Leno do it. You can see that he has a feeling for the football club.’

  • Arsenal were sitting bottom of the Premier League last month but have improved recently to climb to 11th, four points outside of the top-four places.

Following the international break, the Gunners resume their Premier League campaign with a London derby against Crystal Palace.bbc
