Transfer: Why we signed David Raya – Arsenal


Arsenal suggested on Tuesday that they signed David Raya because the goalkeeper would add quality and depth to Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Saga Gist recalls that Arsenal signed Raya from Premier League rival Brentford on a season-long loan.

The Spanish international keeper has been an integral part of Brentford’s team in recent seasons.

The 27-year-old played in all 38 of Brentford’s Premier League matches last season.

Speaking on Arsenal’s decision to sign Raya, the club’s sporting director, Edu, said (as quoted by Arsenal’s website): “We welcome David to us on a season-long loan from Brentford. David is a top-quality goalkeeper who has consistently performed to a high level with Brentford in the Premier League.

“With David joining us, we are adding quality and depth to our squad so we can perform at the highest possible level in all competitions.”
