Back in January transfer window, Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Matt Turner from New England Revolution in the MLS.
The 27-year-old goalkeeper is expected to arrive Emirates this summer and fight alongside Aaron Ramsdale in goal behind to stick for Arsenal in upcoming campaign.
Turner has been established himself as one of the best shot-stopper in the MLS, with the goalkeeper saved nine of the 20 penalties he has faced in his career, including two from former Manchester United winger, Nani.

The American made 109 appearances for Revolution, he has conceded 143 and kept 24 clean sheets. He has also picked up five yellow cards and a red.
Turner is also a goalkeeper for the USA Men’s National Team, making his debut almost a year ago, and playing 16 times since.
He has kept clean sheets in 11 of those games, including against Mexico over 210 minutes, Canada twice, and Bosnia in an international friendly.
Speaking after a recent game against El Salvador, which they won 1-0, the USAMNT coach, Gregg Berhalter, confirmed Turner’s move to Arsenal.
‘It’s an amazing story,’ Berhalter said.
‘His work ethic, his belief in himself and his never-give-up attitude, it’s a great story and Matt is a great guy, a great team-mate. We’re lucky to have him.
‘Tonight was an example where he did everything he had to do. He was calm in all situations, wasn’t tested much, but he was there when we needed him and he looked like a guy that’s going to Arsenal for sure.’
