Arsenal are reportedly set to launch their bid to sign Aaron Ramsdale after his involvement in Euro 2020.

The Sheffield United keeper was called up into the England squad after the 1-0 win over Croatia as a replacement for injured Dean Henderson.

Ramsdale then emerged as a surprise name on Arsenal’s summer wanted list with the future of Bernd Leno unclear.

Yet according to the Star, any deal for the 23-year-old would have proved difficult while he was away with Gareth Southgate’s squad.

But the report adds that Arsenal are understood to have told the Blades to expect an offer for Ramsdale once the Euros are over.

The Gunners’ opening bid is said to likely fall short of United’s £40million price tag but will prove the club are serious about a deal.

Brighton’s Mat Ryan spent the second half of last season on loan in North London but looks unlikely to return to Arsenal.

Ramsdale meanwhile suffered a tough season with Sheff Utd following their relegation from the Premier League.

He returned to his old club last summer in a £20m move from Bournemouth – again as a replacement for Red Devils stopper Henderson.

The former Chesterfield loanee was also part of the country’s Under-21s Euros squad that crashed out in the group stages in March.

He is currently behind Everton’s Jordan Pickford and Sam Johnstone of West Brom in Southgate’s pecking order.
