Arsenal stars Aaron Ramsdale and Gabriel Magalhaes have sent heartwarming messages to new Nottingham Forest star Matt Turner on Instagram. The Reds have now landed the new goalkeeper ahead of their first game of the season against the Gunners on Saturday.
Ramsdale and Turner will lock horns this weekend. It does look quite likely that Turner will be busier than the England goalkeeper and perhaps Forest are a few players away from having what they can call a full squad available.
Forest have now got themselves a goalkeeper added to their ranks. They’ve been chasing Dean Henderson all summer, although there are some uncertainties over the thigh injury he’s currently recovering from.
There is a sense that a deal could still be struck for Forest to sign Henderson later in the window. However, in the meantime, the Reds have got themselves an international stopper between the posts in the shape of Turner.
The 29-year-old made just seven appearances for the Gunners during his 12 months at the club. Recently, he captained the United States at the Gold Cup, with regular skipper Tyler Adams nursing an injury that ruled him out.

Clearly, the two goalkeepers worked well together at Arsenal. Despite Ramsdale holding the gloves more often than not, it’s quite abundantly clear that the two players enjoyed a steady relationship.
Following the player’s move to Forest, Ramsdale delivered a heartwarming opinion on Turner’s post on Instagram. He said: “Gonna miss you big guy.”
Gabriel Magalhaes also reacted on social media. He kept things short and sweet, posting: “All the best bro.”
Clearly, the player was a popular figure in the dressing room at Arsenal. Although he might not have played a great deal of football, it seems as though he was a good character to have around the club.
Now, the player will hope to bring similar qualities to Forest. The Reds have been in desperate need of a goalkeeper and hopefully, the player can hit the ground running.
