US goalkeeper Matt Turner has signed a long-term contract with Premier League team Arsenal from MLS team New England Revolution.

Following the announcement that the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer had reached an agreement with Arsenal, the 28-year-old was generally anticipated to complete the transfer. Arsenal has now officially announced the signing of Turner, who joins Marquinhos, a talented Brazilian attacker, and Fabio Vieira, a Portugal Under-21 international, as their summer signings.

Turner has represented his nation in 18 matches since his international debut in January 2021. He was a key member of the team that qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, as well as the six games the United States played en route to winning the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Turner joined Jersey Express in the US Premier Development League after graduating from Fairfield University in Connecticut, where he spent one season, before signing with the New England Revolution in 2016.

During his six years with the MLS franchise, Turner made 102 appearances for the New England Revolution and was chosen as the league's Most Valuable Player in 2020 by both fans and teammates.

"Matt Turner is a seasoned goalkeeper who will contribute excellent quality to our squad," said Mikel Arteta, the head coach of Arsenal. He has demonstrated through his recent performances that he is a goalkeeper who will give us additional strength heading into the upcoming campaign, both in the MLS and internationally with the United States. We cordially invite Matt and his family to the club and anticipate collaborating with them in the future.
