Arsenal Newcomer Already a Fan Favourite After Just Arriving

Arsenal, on Monday, announced the arrival of their third summer signing in the form of Matt Turner from the MLS side, New England Revolution.

Back in February at the start of the year New England Revolution already made the announcement that they will lose their star stopper, Matty Turner, to the Gunners for a fee of £4.5m up front, which could later rise to £7.5m in added bonuses.

He follows the arrival of Marquinhos from Sao Paulo and Fabio Vieira from FC Porto, but following him through the doors at the Emirates will be Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus for a reported fee of £45m, with a deal for Ajax defender, Lisandro Martinez, still being worked on.

Turner will join the club as Aaron Ramsdale’s backup, providing quality competition and quality in depth, which in return, adds more doubt to Bernd Leno’s future at the North London club.

Matty Turner Just Joined the Club and His Already Winning Fans Over

I think it is safe to say that Matty Turner has already convinced the fans that he is a Gunner by heart and that he is ready to give everything to the club, the badge, and the fans.

In the video below, he shows his alliance with the red half of North London by snubbing a Spurs supporter of an autograph from him. This obviously epitomises the heated rivals between the neighbouring teams.

Because of this, his first Emirates reception will be a great one and one he can now look forward to.

A Good Start to Life as Arsenal’s Backup Goalkeeper

The MLS’s Goalkeeper of the Year for 2021 has made a good start with the fans of Arsenal for his small act of loyalty shown in the video. This is also the breed of players any club should be looking to sign, players playing for the badge and not the paycheck only.

The more players that Arsenal signs who want to be at the club, the more likely they are to fight for better places in the league standings. Like Ramsdale, who barely put a foot wrong last season when he took over from Leno, he wants to be at the club.

Two keepers of top quality and a lot of years of playing experience will certainly bring out the best in each other. With Aaron Ramsdale only 24 years old and Matt Turner 28, there is a lot of football to be played between the two of them.
