Arsenal are reportedly close to selling 29-year-old goalkeeper Matt Turner to Premier League club Nottingham Forest.
According to Fabrizio Romano, an agreement is close to being finalised between all parties for the USA international, who is set to leave Arsenal after just one year at the club.
With the Gunners reportedly close to signing Brentford keeper David Raya, moving on Turned makes quite a lot of sense for Arsenal, especially with Forest likely to pay a reasonable fee for the American.
Lauded by Brad Friedel as an ‘incredible’ player, Turner only appeared in domestic cup and European competitions for Arsenal last season. However, there’s no denying the shot-stopper’s quality.
Indeed, Turner impressed at the 2022 FIFA World Cup with the US, and at Forest, the New Jersey native could become a superstar in the Premier League, much to Arsenal’s dismay.

Turner will prove Arsenal wrong at Forest next season
Turner’s departure to facilitate the arrival of Raya ticks a lot of boxes for Arsenal, yet the 29-year-old could prove a lot of figures in north London wrong with Forest.
As we know, Turner has impressed whenever given a chance to start for Arsenal, and becoming a starter for Forest could prove many doubters wrong in the new season.
Whilst Aaron Ramsdale remains a superior keeper, Turner can perk up people’s attention if given the starting spot for Forest, with the American eager to impress.
