Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino will be expecting to see vast improvement when his side host Sheffield United on Saturday. 

The Blues have endured a dismal campaign so far, losing seven and winning just five of their 16 Premier League matches.

That run of form has left the Blues 12th in the top flight table, and Pochettino is under increasing pressure to turn his side’s fortunes around.

Pochettino could be boosted by the return of Christopher Nkunku to full fitness ahead of the match, with the Argentine confirming that the forward will be in the matchday squad for the first time since his summer move from RB Leipzig.

With the January transfer window just weeks away, though, reports suggest that Chelsea are considering stepping up their interest in an Arsenal star.

As per TalkSPORT, the Blues are considering a move for Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, following an injury to Robert Sanchez last week.

Ramsdale has fallen out of favour at The Emirates

The Spaniard was forced off during the Blues’ 2-0 defeat against Everton at Goodison Park, and the report claims that they are now considering a January move to sign the out-of-favour Arsenal ‘keeper.

Ramsdale joined the Gunners from Sheffield United back in 2021 and was a regular for Mikel Arteta’s side throughout his first two seasons in North London.

The England international helped Arsenal to a second-place finish in the Premier League last term, returning to the Champions League this season after seven years out of the competition.

David Raya joined the Gunners on loan from Brentford over the summer, though, and the Spaniard has since overtaken Ramsdale as Arteta’s first choice ‘keeper.

This season, the Englishman has made just nine appearances across all competitions and started only five league games.

Ramsdale is expected to push for a move away from The Emirates in search of more regular football, but the report claims that is it currently unclear whether or not Arsenal will allow him to leave in January.
