Arsenal fans beg Arteta to start Aaron Ramsdale in MIDFIELD over Havertz after ‘next level’ skill in England training | The Sun

ARSENAL fans have joked that Aaron Ramsdale should start in MIDFIELD after footage of his outfield skills emerged in England training.

England's Twitter account posted a video of Marcus Rashford drop kicking a ball at Ramsdale, who controls the ball with a flourish and proceeds to exhibit his impressive skill at juggling the ball.

The footage caused fans to joke that Ramsdale should be pushed into the midfield – particularly after reports emerged that new signing David Raya is close to moving ahead of him in the pecking order.

The Daily Mail reported yesterday that manager Mikel Arteta has been "deeply impressed" with the Spanish goalkeeper's performances in training since he joined the club.

Raya's ability to play out from the back is said to have really caught the eye of Arteta.

It's led the manager to "give serious consideration" to giving the Spaniard a "prolonged run in the team" over the coming weeks.

Fans on Twitter claimed to have come up with a solution if Ramdale is to be dropped, saying: "Might move him into the midfield uno."

Another replied: "Rammers in that Havertz role" alongside a video of Pep Guardiola saying "We'll be there".

A third wrote: "Should swap him and Havertz, would concede the same but score more."

While a fourth added: "OMG, Ramsdale's touch is next level."

Kai Havertz has struggled to make a real impact in the Arsenal side following his £65million move from rivals Chelsea.

The midfielder is yet to register a goal or an assist in his four Premier League appearances so far this season.

An embarrassing air-kick when through on goal against United was the latest example of his struggles in an Arsenal shirt this season.

But Arteta leapt to the defence of his midfielder in the post-match press-conference, bizarrely comparing the midfielder's struggle for goals to how he met his wife.

Arteta said: "I said to him yesterday, things are hard in the beginning.

"When I met my wife, in the beginning it was hard to conquer her and I had to try and keep messaging.

"In the end, she said yes, she wanted to be together and it was beautiful.

"If it is a yes on the first day, it is not that great.
