Mat Ryan has told Arsenal that he can be a "world-class" option for them between the sticks, with questions being asked of Bernd Leno's future at Emirates Stadium.

Ryan is on loan from Brighton and is looking for something permanent. He is confident that he is able enough to replace the German goalkeeper.

Mat Ryan has told Arsenal that he can be a “world-class” option for them between the sticks, with questions being asked of Bernd Leno’s future at Emirates Stadium. Leno has remained first-choice goalkeeper for the Gunners throughout the 2020-21 campaign, but has made the odd mistake and seen a summer transfer speculated on.

Ryan is on loan from Brighton and is looking for something permanent. He is confident that he is able enough to replace the German goalkeeper.

Ryan has told Optus Sport discussing his winter arrival and subsequent experiences with Arsenal: “Obviously there was a bit of disappointment around how things ended up there at Brighton.

“Then this move came about and I could understand why people could have drawn the conclusion that ‘yeah, he’s coming here as a No.2 and wants to take the foot off the pedal, enjoy training and not push so hard’.

“Anyone that really knows me knows that’s not my style at all. My motivation is to get out on the pitch and perform.

“That’s the reason I sacrificed every other aspect of my life, moving away from family and friends to be across here and to be out there on the pitch and represent the club that I’m playing for.

“Obviously I knew that Arsenal have a great goalkeeper in Bernd, what he’s done in his career is testament to the world-class goalkeeper he is.

“But at the same time, I have self-belief that I’m also a world-class goalkeeper.”

Will Ryan become the Arsenal number 1 in the future? Only time will tell.
