Turner: I want to push Ramsdale - but I accept I'm not Arsenal's No 1

New Arsenal goalkeeper ,Matt Turner admits he has been signed by Mikel Arteta as a back-up to Aaron Ramsdale but vows to push the England international all the way.

The New England Revolution shot stopper agreed a move to the Gunners back in February but has spent the last few months playing for his MLS side.

The American international will report for Arsenal duty next Wednesday where he will complete his medical and finalise the move, but will accept his role to Ramsdale's understudy for the forthcoming season.

Asked about the perception of him playing a back-up role at the Emirates Stadium, Turner told Sky Sports News: "I can see why they'd assess it that way. 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."
