The transfer was made effective for a little over $6 million dollars , a figure that the Gunners paid to the American franchise for their record.
With Arsenal he became the team’s third reinforcement, after strikers Fabio Vieira and Marquinhos , and will have a multi-year contract.
However, he will have to fight for the position with Bernd Leno , who is likely to leave the team, and Aaron Ramsdale , the most expensive goalkeeper in Arsenal history.
