Following his move from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach in 2014, Ter-Stegen has seen himself become one of the greatest shot-stoppers in Europe.

The Germany star was understudy to Claudio Bravo when he first arrived at the Nou Camp, however since the Chilean’s departure, Ter-Stegen has done a very solid job of filling his void.

During his time with Barcelona, the player has managed to fill his trophy cabinet to the brim, as since his arrival, the Spanish giants have won one Champions League, two La Liga titles, one Supercopa De Espanya, one Copa Del Rey, one European Super Cup and one Club World Cup.

Should Arsenal up their interest in Ter-Stegen, it’ll be interesting to see if they can fend off both PSG and Juventus in the race to secure the player’s signature.
