Arsenal revive interest in Freddie Woodman

Arsenal look to be concocting a move for Freddie Woodman of Newcastle United. They are preparing to hold talks with the Magpies over a potential deal.

The Gunners were considering a move for the England U20 World Cup winner earlier in the summer as part of a deal for Joe Willock.

Willock, who starred on loan for the Magpies last term, made a permanent switch to St. James’ Park in a £25,000,000 deal. However, Arsenal could still put forth a bid for Woodman

The Gunners are in the market for a new number one this summer to provide more competition for German stopper Bernd Leno. Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale topped their priority list behind Andre Onana.

Nonetheless, Mikel Arteta was not convinced by his £35,000,000 price tag. Thus, his name was struck off the shortlist as alternatives are being looked at.

Arsenal discussed the inclusion of Woodman as part of the deal which saw Joe Willock go the other way. The Magpies were unwilling to offload their keeper in such a deal. Although, they could be swayed by a substantial cash offer.

Woodman to the rescue for Arsenal

Woodman is yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Magpies. He joined as a teenager in 2013. At the time, his father, Andy Woodman, was the goalkeeping coach.

The 24-year-old spent the last two seasons on loan in the Championship with Swansea. Gifted with a sudden opportunity, Woodman looks set to make his top flight debut when Newcastle host West Ham on Sunday.

Injury keeps Martin Dubravka on the sideline. Karl Darlow is likely to miss out as he continues his recovery from Covid.

Arsenal are to enter into talks with Steve Bruce’s side soon. Arteta will be hoping to avoid a situation similar to Ramsdale’s.
