Arsenal to sign Raya on £3m loan with £27m option to buy

Arsenal are finalising a deal to sign Brentford keeper David Raya.

The deal will see Arsenal sign Raya on loan for £3m with an option to buy for £27m.

Early indications suggest he hasn't been registered in time to be part of the squad that faces Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Brentford have extended Raya's contract by a year to protect his value if the option is not taken up. He had previously entered the final year of his deal.

Raya will provide competition for Aaron Ramsdale for the No 1 position.

Brentford have already signed a new goalkeeper in Mark Flekken, who joined for £11m from Freiburg in June.
