EPL: His performances, character surprises me – Carragher names best signing this season

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, has identified Arsenal goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale, as the best signing of the season so far in the Premier League.

Carragher admitted that he has been surprised by Ramsdale’s performances and character for Arsenal so far this season.

Ramsdale joined Arsenal from Sheffield United in the summer for £25m.

The 23-year-old shot-stopper has exceeded expectations and been a big part of Arsenal’s resurgence after a poor start to the current season, with the Gunners now in fourth position on the Premier League table.

Asked to name the signing of the season in the Premier League so far, Carragher told Sky Sports: “I went for Ramsdale because it was almost a big surprise to me.

“When they brought him in, I thought they would bring him in as back-up or because he was an English player, for the quota.

“He hadn’t impressed me in his Premier League time at Sheffield United and Bournemouth.

“It’s not just the saves he’s made, he’s a personality, he’s a character.

“To go in the dressing room at Arsenal, yes there are young players there, but it’s still a huge club, going in as a young lad, a goalkeeper.

“He’s got a presence about him that I didn’t see that he had, he’s had a big impact on the team.”
