WATCH: MATT TURNER, WHO IS BOUND FOR ARSENAL, REFUSES TO SIGN A TOTTENHAM FAN’S JERSEY
A video of incoming Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner that surfaced online on Monday is sure to bring a collective grin to the Gunners faithful’s faces.
This comes after the 27-year-old made it clear that he is committed to the red half of north London.

As he made his way through the crowd, Turner was seen signing jerseys and mementos held out by fans as a farewell gift.

This comes as part of Arsenal’s ongoing recruitment effort, which saw the club intensify their chase of Leeds United midfielder Raphinha today.
Indeed, rumours from the explosive attacker’s home country of Brazil suggest that talks between the Emirates and Elland Road boards might be completed as soon as this week.
