Turner ready to turn up heat on new Arsenal teammate Ramsdale

Matt Turner says he'll arrive at Arsenal to push No1 Aaron Ramsdale.

Turner hopes to oust Ramsdale as first-choice - just like the England stopper did to Bernd Leno last season.

The 16-cap USA star, 27, is linking up with the Gunners this month after they agreed a deal with Major League Soccer side New England Revolution in February.

Turner is tipped to star the season as second-choice keeper as Leno is expected to leave.

But the MLS player of the year aims to 'push' Ramsdale and make them both better players.

He told Sky Sports: "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."
