Gabriel Agbonlahor tells Arsenal star to leave in January amid interest from Chelsea

Former Premier League star Gabriel Agbonlahor has urged Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale to leave in January amid interest from Chelsea.

The 25-year-old has been a key part of the Gunners’ recent success under Mikel Arteta after joining from Sheffield United two years ago but seems to have lost his place to David Raya.

Raya has started Arsenal’s last two matches against Everton and PSV Eindhoven and looks certain to remain in goal for Sunday’s north London derby against Tottenham.

Agbonlahor told talkSPORT: “Ramsdale will be in the horrors now. The Euros are coming he’s thinking to himself I’ve just played for England I’ve got a chance now.

“Now he probably won’t even get on the plane.

“Dean Henderson left Manchester United and has gone to Crystal Palace and he’s got a task to get Sam Johnstone out of the side.

“He has to go and play somewhere, it’s as simple as that. We said it about Phillips and Maguire and these players but I mean Ramsdale, you’d be devastated.

“He got his team into the Champions League he played a big part of it but football is heartless.”
