The Gunners have officially completed the signing of goaltender Matt Turner, the US national team player who linked with Arsenal after bidding farewell to MLS side New England Revolution.

 

A little about the topic

The deal for Matt Turner was made back in February, with the player allowed to stay in his home country until the summer as he is betting on becoming USMNT No. 1 by the 2022 World Championship. The USA goalkeeper is now poised to give Ramsdale competition at Emirates Stadium with an £8m deal that has landed him on the Arsenal books.

 

T-shirt number

Matt has been announced to take the No.30 jersey at Emirates Stadium. Matt Turner inherits this jersey from Eddie Nkeitah, with the striker recently signed a new deal with Arsenal, opting to move to the No. 14 spot once occupied by club legend Thierry Henry. Matt will also follow in the footsteps of the likes of Jeremie Aliadiere, Yossi Benayoun and Ainsley Maitland-Niles when it comes to filling the No.30 berth with the Gunners’.

 

What was said about Matt Turner?

Matt’s arrival in north London will likely push German goalkeeper Bernd Leno through the exits as the player heads off in search of more regular playing time. Aaron Ramsdale has become Arteta’s transition option between the sticks, but Matt Turner is expected to contest the right to take over starting duties. Mikel Arteta told the Gunners’ official website that Matt Turner is an experienced goaltender who will bring high quality to their squad.

Turner has shown through his performances in recent years both in the MLS and internationally with the USA that he is the goalkeeper who will give them extra strength going into next season. According to Arteta, they welcome Turner and his family to the club and look forward to working together in the coming years.

Edu’s CTO added that they are thrilled to have Turner joining them. Matt Turner is a goalkeeper with established qualities and experience who will be a great addition to their squad. According to Edu, they identified Turner some time ago and worked hard to get his transfer completed so he could join them for their pre-season in July. Edu says they are now looking forward to Turner joining them, settling into his new home and working ahead of next season.
