HERE WE GO” Arsenal, imminent signing of the ‘foot genius’ goalkeeper…”Transfer fee 50.3 billion”

A new goalkeeper is coming to Arsenal.

Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano, familiar with the transfer market, said on the 9th (Korean time), “David Raya (27, Brentford) will join Arsenal.” The transfer fee is about 30 million pounds (approximately 50.3 billion won) including options, and the contract period is 5 years, he added.안전놀이터

Raya is one of the protagonists of the Brentford blast. He has been a goalkeeper since joining Brentford in 2019. His greatest strength is his kick. He uses precise and sharp kicks to help the team build up. He also makes several good saves using his animalistic reflexes. At 183cm, he is short for a goalkeeper, but his influence is high.

In 2021, with Brentford, he completed an emotional first division promotion. And in 38 league appearances last season, he conceded only 46 goals. Brentford recorded good results thanks to Raya’s performance.

Transfer rumors circulated ahead of the summer season. He received interest from the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, who needed a new goalkeeper. However, Brentford set a ransom of 40 million pounds (approximately 67.1 billion won) for Raya. Tottenham and Manchester United turned off their interest in Raya with the signings of Guglielmo Vicario and Andre Onana, respectively.

Arsenal and Bayern Munich followed suit. Arsenal were looking for a goalkeeper who would rival Aaron Ramsdale in good faith. Munich have sought a replacement for Manuel Neuer, who is about to return from injury.

The final destination was Arsenal. According to various media, it is known that Raya wanted to transfer to Arsenal. Arsenal succeeded in signing Raya for £30 million, cheaper than the originally announced ransom.

Meanwhile, Arsenal won the championship by defeating Manchester City after a bloody penalty shoot-out in the FA Community Shield held on the 7th. It announced a smooth start and made us look forward to the upcoming season even more.
