Sheffield United keeper Aaron Ramsdale could become hot property this summer with not one but two major Premier League sides interested in him.
The 23-year-old joined the Blades last summer from AFC Bournemouth but with Sheffield getting relegated, the keeper will have to spend the next season in the Championship. But as per The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves could hand him a ticket back to the Premier League as the two clubs are actively searching for a new shot-stopper.
The report claims: “Tottenham are among the clubs interested in handing Aaron Ramsdale a Premier League reprieve.
“The goalkeeper, who has been named on England’s stand-by list for the Euros, was relegated with Sheffield United last season.
“But a number of clubs, Spurs and Wolves among them, are interested in giving Ramsdale a Bramall Lane escape route. The Blades face a fight to keep their best players following their return to the Championship last season.”
Tottenham Hotspur could lose Hugo Lloris this summer as the French keeper is being eyed by AS Roma’s new boss Jose Mourinho while Wolves are also on the verge of losing Rui Patricio.

AS Roma Live claims: “World champion with France Lloris immediately seemed a goal for Roma. And as we at Asromalive had anticipated, the Special One had been looking for it right away.
“But at that moment, it was not easy to imagine that the pieces were moving in this way.”
Patricio is another name who has been linked with Roma but even if Mourinho does not want him then also Wolves will need to find a new keeper since the 33-year-old has entered the final year of his contract at Molineux.
Spurs’ interest in Aaron Ramsdale is obviously in the nascent stages and this will only be confirmed once they appoint a new full-time manager at the club. And this could give Wolves a massive window of opportunity to move ahead and wrap up the transfer with Sheffield before the North London side can finalize a manager.
Sheffield United signed Aaron Ramsdale just one year ago so they will not be too keen to sell him after just one year but there’s a big chance that the player might ask to leave since he will have the chance to return to the top flight next season itself.
