Brad Friedel, former Premier League player, has urged Matt Turner to leave Arsenal because he is too good to be Aaron Ramsdale’s backup.
Arsenal signed Matt Turner from the New England Revolution in the summer for £5.7 million. But has made just four appearances for Arsenal, all of which have come in the Europa League.
However, he has three clean sheets and has only conceded once. Ramsdale is Arteta’s first-choice goalkeeper, and that won’t change unless he gets injured.

Turner, according to Brad Friedel, is wasting his talent at Arsenal and should seek a transfer.
“Time will tell if it’s the right decision. When you’re in the MLS, this is what I’ll say – it’s hard to turn down a club like Arsenal coming in for you.”
“But when you move and you’re as good as Matt Turner, I’d like to think that you would move and you’re being told that you were gonna be the number one which obviously wasn’t the case at Arsenal.”
“Matt’s a heck of a nice guy and a heck of a good goalkeeper. I personally think he’s too good of a goalkeeper to be sitting on the bench.”
“I don’t know what kind of deal they have with Arsenal or what, but I hope if he’s not in the team, or doesn’t look like he’s gonna get near the team, then they would allow him to leave or go on loan.”
