DARREN BENT has raised his eyebrows over David Raya’s imminent Arsenal transfer.
The Brentford goalkeeper, 27, is set to join the Gunners on loan for £3million with an option to buy for £27m.
Raya is likely to become an understudy to Aaron Ramsdale who he will also provide competition for the top spot.
Arsenal’s goalkeeping coach Inaka Cana has played a key role in the club’s long-term interest in Raya.
Cana was previously the goalkeeping coach at Brentford and played a major part in Raya signing from Blackburn in summer 2019.
Bent, who has teamed up with Greene King to launch a new B.A.R system, said: “Raya is a strange one because he’s going to come and be number two behind Ramsdale.
“When I look at David Raya as a goalkeeper, he could potentially to so many different places and become their number one.
“I thought he could have gone to Chelsea, Spurs and he was linked to Bayern Munich so it’s strange on his part.
“I guess for Arsenal they want to try and bring in two good quality players for every position.
“If you want to challenge and be at the top of the Premier League and challenging in Europe then you need to have a strong squad.
“Arsenal are trying to do that. That’s what let them down last season. They got injuries and the players that came in weren’t up to the same standard.”
To celebrate the return of the Premier League, Greene King has teamed up with Darren Bent to launch a brand new B.A.R (Bar Assistant Referee) system, ensuring customers get the perfectly poured pint every time.
