Matt Turner has joined Arsenal after passing a medical with the Premier League club, having agreed a transfer earlier this year.

Arsenal have confirmed the arrival of United States goalkeeper Matt Turner from the New England Revolution.

The Revs announced in February a deal had been agreed with Arsenal for Turner.

And he will be subject to the completion of a medical.

The 28-year-old now heads to Emirates Stadium for a reported £7.5million ($9.2m) transfer fee, boosting Mikel Arteta’s options in goal.

Turner is likely to serve as back-up to Aaron Ramsdale.

With Bernd Leno – the number one prior to the England man’s signing last season – linked with a move away.

The USMNT star arrives after an outstanding 2021 season, in which he was the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year and made the MLS Best XI as the Revs won the Supporters’ Shield.

Turner also appeared in the MLS All-Star Game for the first time.

And was named MVP after saving two penalties in a shoot-out win over a Liga MX outfit.

Arteta said:

“Matt is an experienced goalkeeper who will bring high quality to our squad.

“He has shown with his performances in recent years in both MLS.

“And at international level with the United States that he is a goalkeeper who will give us added strength going into next season.

“We welcome Matt and his family to the club.

“And we look forward to working together in the years to come.”

Turner follows Marquinhos and Fabio Vieira to Arsenal in this transfer window.

And appears set to be joined by Gabriel Jesus, for whom the Gunners have reportedly agreed a deal with Manchester City.

Arsenal is very fruitful in this transfer as they are filling the holes in their squad due to the recent departures.
