Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Macey is reportedly considering his future at the club. That is according to a report from Sky Sports, who suggest the incoming arrival of Runar Alex Runarsson might be the last straw for the 6ft 7ins stopper, who is now contemplating a move away from The Emirates.
The 26-year-old would have been hoping for a chance to succeed Emi Martinez as Arsenal’s back-up stopper following the Argentine’s move to Aston Villa.
However, the apparent (Evening Standard) £1.5 million deal to sign the Dijon keeper has seemingly convinced Macey that time will never come and he is now thinking of a possible exit.
The talented stopper arrived at Arsenal in 2013 from Bristol Rovers but his first-team experience in North London has been limited.
He has played for the Arsenal first-team on just two occasions, against Norwich City and Red Star Belgrade in 2017.
After his impressive performance against the Serbian side in the latter fixture, then Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger praised his ‘very agile’ stopper for his progress at the club, as reported by The Independent, but it seems Macey is now tired of playing third-wheel.
Plenty of Football League teams would undoubtedly take an interest in the player, should an exit become likely and Macey, who had a one-year contract extension triggered for this term, will be looking for a location where first-team football might be more attainable.
