Turner reveals move motivation

Matt Turner has opened up on his motivation for swapping a starting spot in the MLS for a back-up role at Arsenal.

The American has joined the Gunners from New England Revolution, who he plays his last game for this weekend. And he has insisted that when he completes his move to London, he will be working to challenge Aaron Ramsdale.

“Aaron had an amazing season for Arsenal and played well all year. I’d agree with it for now. I’m coming in to push him and become the best goalkeeper I can become, while also making him the best goalkeeper he can become That’s really my goal for it all,” he told Sky Sports.

“We’ve talked a little bit. His main message for me was just to focus on what I need to focus on right now, getting through these next few months, staying healthy, staying fit and getting ready for pre-season and compete. The project they have going on there, [I want to be] an important part of the locker room, adding some experience.”
