Emerging report claims that the English Premier League outfit, Arsenal are in search of a new goalkeeper as they are set to part ways with Emiliano Martinez in this summer transfer window.

Emi Martinez has proven he is a very great goalkeeper, after helping the club with the FA Cup title at the absence of Bernd Leno as well as helping to seal the Community Shield Cup title against Premier League champions, Liverpool.

The concern is that after delivering a classy performance, Emi Martinez might not accept to remain as a second-choice goalkeeper to Bernd Leno and manager Mikel Arteta is not willing to give him the nod ahead of the German.

It is claimed that he could be sold to help him continue with regular football and also to fulfil his potentials away from the club.

However, The Mirror reports that the North London club are now in search of a new goalkeeper that will be available as an option to Bernd Leno and have identified Brentford shot-stopper, David Raya.

After watching Emi Martinez in another superb performance against Liverpool, it is unsure if the Gunners will continue with the reported plan to have him sold but if that will go on, they will make a bid for David Raya.
