Arsenal have announced the signing of goalkeeper David Raya on a season-long loan from Brentford.

The Spanish goalkeeper will move to the Gunners for a £3million loan fee, but the deal also includes a £27million option to buy, depending on certain conditions.

Arsenal sporting director Edu told the club’s official 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.”

Raya joined Brentford from Blackburn for a £3million fee in the summer of 2019.
