Former England international Gabby Agbonlahor has suggested that Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale is not a world-class goalkeeper.
Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is better than Ramsdale, Agbonlahor told TalkSPORT.
Ramsdale and Martinez have both impressed in their respective Premier League campaigns this season.
“I don’t think he [Aaron Ramsdale] is world class. No, he’s not world class.
“Yesterday, I was talking to someone about Martinez, [there has] There has been talk of all the big clubs wanting the Aston Villa goalkeeper.
“I mean, ‘You can’t let him go, Aston Villa!’.” Because every club that does well in world football has a top goalkeeper, and he’s top. For me, Martinez is better than Ramsdale,” he said.
