Could Matt Turner follow his big year with an even bigger one?
Premier League club Arsenal reportedly has lodged a transfer bid for the New England Revolution and U.S. men’s national team goalkeeper, according to ESPN’s Taylor Twellman.
“@Arsenal have put in a strong bid for @headdturnerr from the @NERevolution today … ,” Twellman wrote in a tweet.
Turner, 27, won the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year award in the 2021 season, having helped New England win the Supporters Shield title and earn an MLS record-setting 73 points in the regular season. He also debuted for the U.S. national team last year, amassing a 9-1-2 record in 12 starts and claiming Best XI and Best Goalkeeper honors at the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup.
MLSSoccer.com’s Tom Bogert reports New England might consider selling Turner for a fee, which approaches eight figures.
“Sources add that discussions are around what Manchester City paid to acquire USMNT goalkeeper Zack Steffen from the Columbus Crew in 2019, which was around $7 million initially with incentives to take the total package to around $10 million,” Bogert wrote.
If Arsenal signs Turner during the January transfer window, it would add another chapter to his fairytale career.
