Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper, Brad Friedel, has suggested that Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner should consider leaving the club on loan because he is too good to be on the bench.
Turner joined Arsenal from MLS side New England Revolution over the summer.
The 28-year-old is serving as No.2 keeper to goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and has played just four games for Mikel Arteta’s side so far.
“Time will tell if it’s the right decision,” Friedel told Fair Betting Sites.
“When you’re in the MLS, this is what I will 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.”
