Bournemouth want £25m for Tottenham target Aaron Ramsdale
According to a report from Daily Mail (h/t Football.london), EFL Championship side Bournemouth will demand a transfer fee of £25m for goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, who has been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.
The 22-year-old Ramsdale joined Bournemouth in January 2017 from Sheffield United. He had loan spells away at Chesterfield and Wimbledon, before becoming a regular part of the first-team in the 2019/20 campaign.
Ramsdale ended the season with 37 Premier League appearances. While he shipped in a whopping 62 goals, the young custodian wasn’t helped a leaky defence in front of him. There were glimpses of his quality on display on a number of occasions over the course of the season.
Last month, the Daily Mail reported that Tottenham Hotspur were looking into the possibility of signing the Englishman.
And now, it is being claimed that Bournemouth will be demanding a fee of £25m for their first-choice goalkeeper in the summer. The report further adds that Ramsdale’s former club, Sheffield United, made an offer which has been rejected by the Cherries already. (h/t Football.london)
Hugo Lloris ended the season on a strong note after going through a dip in form in the early stages. However, recent reports have claimed that manager Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing in another custodian this summer. This is because he is not entirely convinced about current second-choice Paulo Gazzaniga.

Ramsdale may have ended up getting relegated with Bournemouth. But the England U21 international did show signs of immense potential. Under the right guidance, he can be groomed to take over from Lloris in the long run.
But it remains to be seen if the club does make a move for the 22-year-old in the current window.
