The injury of Bernd Leno could force North London outfit, Arsenal into the search for a new goalkeeper as the club can only boast of Emi Martinez.

Emiliano Martinez got the opportunity he has been waiting for in gold as he gave an impressive performance in the absence of Bernd Leno especially in the restart of the Premier League.

Most importantly is the fact that Emi Martinez helped the Gunners to win their 14th FA Cup title to earn a place in the Europa League next season but that has not stopped Arsenal from searching for a new goalkeeper, according to reports.

It is claimed that the North London outfit will move in for a backup goalkeeper to ensure their safety in the course of the coming season.

Dejan Iliev and Matt Macey have both been identified as the best options as a backup gaolkeeper with the North London club hoping to seal a deal for any of one that is available in the summer transfer window.

However, it is expected that Bernd Leno will return to take his place as the first-choice goalkeeper as e is rated as part of the top five goalkeepers in the English Premier League.
