AARON RAMSDALE is hoping for a quick start with Arsenal — in the NEXT game.
And old club Sheffield United will be rubbing their hands with glee if their former keeper pushes in ahead of Bernd Leno.
Ramsdale, 23, has told pals he thinks Mikel Arteta will turn to him for Saturday’s Norwich match following Leno’s beating at Manchester City last weekend.
The rapid change would also mean Blades come in for extra cash as they inserted add-ons in his deal based on appearances.
And insiders reveal some of those bonuses kick in very soon after he makes just a handful of first-team appearances.
Germany ace Leno's future has been under a more harsh spotlight than usual in recent weeks.
The 29-year-old denied he was angling for a summer exit but Inter Milan are reportedly keen on recruiting him for free at the end of the season.
And football.london suggest the former Bayer Leverkusen stopper is "unwilling" to extend his Gunners' contract beyond next summer.
Arteta, meanwhile, needs major improvements throughout his rock-bottom side.
Three defeats, no goals scored and nine conceded leave them below Norwich and Wolves on goal difference.

Leno has started every Arsenal Prem game so far this term, 2-0 defeas against Brentford and Chelsea before the City thumping.
In contrast, Ramsdale, started and kept a clean sheet in the Gunners' only win so far this season – a 6-0 Carabao Cup demolition of a much-weakened West Brom team.
Arsenal ae also said to be monitoring Ajax No1 Andre Onana.
