Is Emiliano Martinez leaving Arsenal?

Timothy Aiyeku



Emiliano Martinez might have had his last game for the English Premier League club, Arsenal as he is being linked with a move away to Leeds United.

The 27-year-old had a superb opportunity in the middle of the sticks with the Gunners after the restart of the Premier League following the injury of Bernd Leno as he helped to win the FA Cup. He has been tipped as a world-class goalkeeper.

Just last week, Emiliano Martinez claimed that he has offers from about 10 clubs in Europe lined up for his signature and he might give them his consideration because of his wish to be a first-choice goalkeeper.

It is very unlikely that manager Mikel Arteta will give Emiliano Martinez the opportunity ahead of Bernd Leno at the Emirates Stadium for the coming season and that could prompt his departure from the club.

Leeds United might decide to bank on the development and hand him a lucrative deal that will lure him away from the North London outfit.

Meanwhile, Emiliano Martinez is still needed by manager Mikel Arteta as a cover while he also takes the role of the first-choice for other Cup competitions like the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup in the coming season.
