Arsenal to miss out on another transfer target with target tipped for La Liga return

Arsenal could miss out on the signature of Mat Ryan despite having him on loan for the second half of last season.

The Gunners remain keen on signing a new goalie and Ryan impressed in his temporary stint with them last season and they want to keep him.

They faced competition from Celtic for his signature, but it seems both British clubs Could miss out on his signature.

The Daily Mail says he is close to a return to Spain where he previously played for Valencia.

He now has interest from Real Sociedad, who can guarantee him regular playing time and he wants that.

The Gunners have missed out on the likes of Emi Buendia and Patson Daka this summer.

They are negotiating for the transfer of Ben White with Brighton, but they need more than the Englishman to have a successful summer.

Ryan is just one of several goalies that have been linked with a move to the Emirates with Arsenal also linked with a move for Andre Onana of Ajax’s.

It is almost a certainty that a new goalie will join considering that Alex Runarsson has proven to be a bad buy.

Until they make his move official, Arsenal can still get their man if they can convince him to remain in the Premier League.

  1. I’m pretty sure if Arsenal wanted Ryan that he would be a Gunner.

    Arsenal hasn’t missed out on anything. He’s a fine back up but clearly Arteta and Edu think they can do better.

    We’ve been linked to 97 players his window. Is this headline going to get trotted out for the 94 of them that sign elsewhere?

    1. Like signing another Runnarson or letting the clearly best keeper we had in Martinez go to Villa.

  2. Ryan impressed me as a very competent keeper on the few occasions he played last season.The fact that we have apparently decided not to sign him is more of a reflection on the doubts concerning the longer term future of Leno at Arsenal, hence our interest in younger keepers such as Ramsdale and Johnstone.I am sure Ryan would have jumped at the prospect of joining Arsenal on a permanent basis.He strikes me as an excellent type of guy, and I wish him very well wherever he goes.

    1. 👍 Questions about Arsenal’s ability to know a good footballer, even if dropped in their laps, still remain. Procrastination and Indecision FC.

    2. I have to agree this deal made a lot of sense on every level and the guy is a fan didn’t do anything wrong when called upon still has a good few years ahead of him has PL/international experience reasonable fee.. what’s not to like??

  3. Yer right , he’s good enough to be number 1 ! No way as error prone as Leno ..

    Had good games when played for us .

    Was a no brainer to get him, glad your so optimistic , after selling Martinez and buying Runnarson ..

    Gooner as well !

    Be a mistake if we pass this also no fee involved which considering the lack of funds for the rest of the field makes even less sense .

    1. He’s getting the chance to be no1 at real sociedad while only being a no2 at arsenal, if he choose us i’be worried about his motivation.

  4. Looks like Runarsson is on his way to Turkey. My heart goes out to him for the way he was treated. At least he can put this nightmare behind him.
    Wishing him all the best!

    1. He joins a list of players who have been treated with disdain Sue.

      I yearn for the days when our club did things in a professional way and that’s no reflection on MA/EDU, but hankers back to the gazidis days after Dein was sacked.

      Think about how our club has declined under the ownership of kronkie – it’s reputation, class and treatment of employees.

      I was at the final game of the season against Brighton and even the stadium, inside and out, needs some TLC.

      I just wonder how the board that sold out to kronkie view the current situation – I just hope that MA can bring the pride back to our club this coming season… heaven knows we need it!!!

      1. He even spoke of how difficult it had been…honestly what did people expect, another Ederson?!! Thrown in at the deep end, abused online, poor sod.
        Can’t see them giving a damn, Ken, money is what it’s all about and they got plenty!
