Arsenal sign Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner

Arsenal has confirmed that Matt Turner, an American goalkeeper who played for the New England Revolution, is coming to play for them.

In February, the Revs said that they had reached a deal with Arsenal for Turner, but that he still had to go through a medical.

The 28-year-old will now move to the Emirates Stadium for a reported £7.5 million ($9.2 million) transfer fee, giving Mikel Arteta more options when it comes to goalkeepers.

Turner is likely to be Aaron Ramsdale’s backup, since Bernd Leno, who was the first-choice goalkeeper before the England international arrived last season, has been linked with a move away from the London club.

The star of the USMNT moves to England after an amazing 2021 season in which the Revs won the Supporters’ Shield and he was named MLS Goalkeeper of the Year and made the MLS Best XI.

Turner also played in the MLS All-Star Game for the first time and was named MVP after saving two penalties in a shootout win over a Liga MX team.

Arteta said, “Matt is an experienced goalie who will bring a lot to our team.”

“He has shown over the past few years, both in MLS and with the US national team, that he is a good goalkeeper who will make us stronger going into next season.

“Matt and his family are welcome to the club, and we’re looking forward to working with them in the future.”
