Matt Turner will return to Arsenal on the verge of being announced next week.
According to Sky Sports, the USA international is due to fly to North London this Wednesday ahead of his official Arsenal unveiling.
The Gunners signed the 27-year-old goalkeeper shortly after the January transfer window, and a summer arrival was always the intention.
The North Londoners haven''t verified the fact yet, or even acknowledged Turner''s existence.
It''s certainly going to happen, especially considering that Turner himself has already discussed with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
He has revealed what the Spanish coach has told him before his arrival to the Emirates Stadium: Weve talked a bit. His primary aim for me was to focus on what I need to do right now, getting through these next few months, staying healthy, staying fit, and getting ready for the pre-season and compete.
Matt Turner to Arsenal a gamble?
Bernd Leno is unlikely to be moved back to Matt Turner to Arsenal.
The Gunners face significant challenges in this regard.
After all, the American stopper has no experience in Premier League football, and considering Leno would be an excellent back-up option to Aaron Ramsdale, well, the artetas side may be in trouble if the former Sheffield United goalkeeper is out for any length of time next term.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Arsenal shouldn''t be held a secret.
This time last year, Arteta raised eyebrows for a 30 million transfer for Ramsdale, who proved to be an exceptional signing.
Turner is hoping that the same thing will be true.
