The newly acquired Arsenal keeper Aaron Ramsdale has been all the rage of late, given his sensational run of form since joining the Gunners this summer. Many – who complained at this £30 million signing from a relegated Sheffield United – have been proven wrong by the 23-year-old goalie who thus far maintains the second-highest save percentage in Premier League 21/22.
Veteran keeper Ben Foster has been one among the many who have heartily hailed the youngster for his “fantastic” mentality. The 38-year-old has been vocal in his praise for Ramsdale, claiming that he has the potential to go on and be a “monster” in front of goal.
In his recent vlog at the Emirates stadium post the Arsenal-Watford clash, Foster was seen showering his fellow countryman with plaudits, while standing right next to him, calling him “one of the best” from the current crop of keepers in the Premier League.
The compliments didn’t end there, as the Watford keeper heralded Ramsdale not only for his agile saves but also for his ability to come out for crosses and his accurate ball distribution, “like a legend”.
The two also talked about Aaron’s magical save against Leicester which the North London outfit won 2-0, to deny James Maddison from a set-piece and undoubtedly prove his mettle in the English top flight.
Given the way this young starlet has grown in stature, having bagged the player of the month for Arsenal in October this year, Ben Foster may not be far away from his judgment of the 23-year-old becoming a future legend.
