The goalkeeper department at Bayern Munich was subject to a lot of debate and speculation throughout the summer transfer window. The Bavarian club had to sign a goalkeeper since Alexander Nubel went out on loan to VfB Stuttgart early in the window, and Yann Sommer joined Inter Milan on a permanent deal.

After exploring several options and making moves for the likes of Kepa Arrizabalaga, David Raya, and Stefan Ortega, Bayern eventually settled with the signing of Daniel Peretz from Maccabi Tel Aviv. Manuel Neuer is expected to make a return to action later in September after spending eight months on the sidelines due to a leg injury.

Despite signing Peretz this summer, Bayern will be soon in the market for a new goalkeeper, depending on how Neuer makes his return to action. The German international will turn 38 later this season, so it makes sense for Die Roten to monitor the situation of top goalkeepers in Europe.

According to Daily Mail, Bayern are one of the several clubs that are closely following the situation of Aaron Ramsdale at Arsenal. Chelsea is also keenly monitoring the situation of Ramsdale. More clubs are likely to show interest if Ramsdale thinks about leaving Arsenal.

The English goalkeeper was number one for Arsenal in the last two seasons, but the signing of Raya from Brentford has led to doubts over his future in North London. Ramsdale was benched against Everton on the weekend.

The English goalkeeper has been one of the key players for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta over the last two seasons. Ramsdale is a decent shot-stopper and very good with the ball, which allowed Arsenal to play out from the back. These qualities of Ramsdale will definitely make him a good candidate for Arsenal.

However, Arsenal will request a significant fee for Ramsdale. The English goalkeeper signed a new deal this year, so the North London club has a lot of leverage to negotiate a big fee. Moreover, Ramsdale will attract interest from several English clubs. Getting involved with English clubs in a bidding war for an England international will not be a wise financial move for Die Roten.

Bayern are probably banking on Neuer to play for at least a couple more years. Peretz will get time to learn from the best in these two years and then eventually challenge for the number one spot. Unless there are major questions over the fitness of Neuer, it is unlikely Bayern will spend big on a goalkeeper next summer.
