 Matt Turner will join Arsenal in the summer of 2022.

The arrival of the 27-year-old will mark the end for Bernd Leno at the Emirates, as the German has been linked with a move to Newcastle United or a return to the Bundesliga.

“When I got my first chance with the national team, I was just number three,” Turner told the Evening Standard.

“Nobody really takes me seriously, but I’m not going there just to get money and go on vacation. I’ll push myself, I’ll push Aaron, make him better and make myself better. .”

Turner has only been a regular in the MLS since 2018 and didn’t make his first U.S. national team cap until last year, so a move to Arsenal was a utopia for him. Anyway, Turner has always been confident in his skills and wants to take on the challenges of the Premier League.

He added : “I understand that coming to Arsenal is really difficult, so it’s hard to turn down, not only the chance to fulfill your dreams, but to challenge yourself at a level the tallest and play for one of the biggest clubs.”
