Mikel Arteta wants to toughen up the competition in his goal. Arsenal is going up and is working on new reinforcements. Although Aubameyang’s exit is the most committed and they work, with Vlahovic (Fiorentina), as the favorite to cover his loss, Mikel Arteta continues ‘eyeing’ different objectives with the goal between them.
As we said, with a view to increasing competition in goal, the Basque coach has a surprising goal to add to the ‘Gunner’ squad. According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have taken an interest in Matt Turner, the 27-year-old goalkeeper for the New England Revolution.
The goalkeeper is a fixture in the MLS team and his good form led him to take over the goal for the United States team. Turner made his debut in February 2021 (7-0 against Trinidad) and appeared in the Gold Cup as the starting goalkeeper. The one from New Jersey was confirmed in the tournament in which Team USA was champion playing every minute and conceding just one goal in the 1-6 against Martinique in the group stage.
His good work has led him to continue defending the goal of the North American team, although he alternated with Steffen in recent official matches. This performance has also been the consequence of the call from Arsenal in what could be his first experience outside the United States after playing for the Fairfield Stags, Jersey Express, Richmond Kicker and his current MLS team.
Valued at three million euros, Arsenal will offer and could spend up to 8 million euros. A surprising figure and request considering the clear ownership of Ramsdale and with a rival like Leno. The English goalkeeper took control of the goal after the first two days of the Premier League in which Arsenal conceded 0-2 against Chelsea and 5-0 against Manchester City.
Ramsdale has played 22 games in which he has conceded 19 goals and has kept a clean sheet on twelve occasions. Now, Arteta wants to squeeze him with a new alternative for the Londoners’ goal.
