Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez could be an Aston Villa player at the start of next week according to the publication from the stables of The Telegraph.

It was revealed that the Gunners shot stopper has agreed on a four-year contract worth £60,000 on a weekly basis with Aston Villa after manager Mikel Arteta failed to give the Argentine first choice assurance.

Emiliano Martinez wants to be the number one goalkeeper at Arsenal and that informed his decision to reject a new deal at the club as he wants regular playing time over money to help his bid to become the undisputed first choice for his country.

The 28-year-old was the subject of an initial bid of £10m from Aston Villa. The bid was turned down by the Gunners prompting the Midlands club to make a new offer of  £15m plus add-ons for him that has proven successful in the eyes of the North London club’s hierarchy.

The Gunners have already identified a potential replacement for Emiliano Martinez in Brentford goalkeeper David Raya.

Various reports said that the Gunners made a £10m bid for David Raya which was rejected.

Brentford informed the Gunners that the shot stopper is not for sale this summer.
