PIERS MORGAN has urged Arsenal not to sign Aaron Ramsdale after the Gunners' transfer target told him to 'f*** off' in 2013.
A handful of old tweets from the 23-year-old have emerged online after the presenter, 56, drew attention to one X-rated critique.
Ramsdale, who was 15 at the time, had informed Morgan of his opinion that Gary Lineker was a better television presenter.
He wrote: "F*** off @piersmorgan at least @GaryLineker knows what he's doing on tv #w*****."
Morgan replied almost eight years later with the comment: "I think Arsenal need to look elsewhere for a goalkeeper."
It was not the only tweet the Sheffield United keeper sent Morgan in his youth, with a 2013 post by the presenter mocking Louis van Gaal's 'gibberish' earning a 'haha' response.
Ramsdale also sent 'shut up you clown' and two laughing emojis to Morgan in 2015 after a tweet about Arsenal 'getting skinned alive' by West Brom.
One fan pointed out that the Gunners may struggle to sign any players if they were required to hold a favourable opinion of the former newspaper editor – to which Morgan claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo would still be able to join.

On Thursday morning, SunSport revealed – likely much to Morgan's pleasure – that talks between Arsenal and Sheffield United over a deal for Ramsdale had broken down.
The goalkeeper is valued at £35million by the Blades despite their relegation to the Championship.
And the Gunners pulled out of the move after failing to negotiate a smaller fee in their bid to replace Bernd Leno.
