Fabrizio Romano is SHOCKED that Arsenal have entered the race for goalkeeper David Raya from Brentford. Arsenal already have 2 young and solid goalkeepers at their club. But Arteta wants another goalkeeper who will push Ramsdale for the no 1 spot. Which clearly Matt Turner isn’t doing.
Matt Turner could also be on his way out to Nottingham Forest this window.
What does Fabrizio have to say on the David Raya interest
Fabrizio Romano said:
“Arsenal are the big surprise in the goalkeepers market because Arsenal have entered the race.
“Arsenal had contacts with the camp of David Raya and they are considering to make a bid very soon.
“Something to add, from what I am hearing, David Raya prefers Arsenal over Bayern for many reasons, but he would love to join Arsenal.”
Arsenal’s pursuit of 27-year-old Raya does make more sense. Matt Turner is subsequently linked with an exit. He is linked to Nottingham Forest.
As part of the club’s moving pieces Turner could be on his way to Nottingham Forest. Who are seemingly choosing between him and Dean Henderson.
Romano’s surprise to see Arsenal move for Raya is more than understandable. But it’s the kind of progression Arteta’s side are striving for the future.
Some Arsenal fans may wonder if the reported £40m asking price for a Goalkeeper could be better spent elsewhere in the club. Arsenal fans would like to see another striker in the squad as most of them don’t trust Nketiah enough. Arsenal are making big moves this summer and are ready to compete for the big titles next season.
