Arsenal offered a chance to sign this Martinez replacement


From all indications, Argentina international Emiliano Martinez will be drawing the curtains of his Arsenal career this summer transfer window for a move to Aston Villa in the coming days.

After proving his quality in the last few games to the end of the season during the absence of Bernd Leno to injury, Emiliano Martinez wishes to have a regular playing time with the feeling that he is now at his peak but that opportunity will not be given to him at the Emirates Stadium with the return of the German goalkeeper from injury.

It is reported that Aston Villa are favourites to land the signature of Emiliano Martinez with personal terms already agreed upon within the region of £60,000 per week.

An earlier bid of £15 million for Emiliano Martinez by Aston Villa has been rejected by the Gunners but it is believed that an improved bid of £20 million will be accepted.

However, Arsenal will work out the possibility of signing Brentford David Raya as his agent is keen to make a move to the Emirates Stadium happen this summer window

He impressed in the Championship last season but the Bees have no intention to sell. A deal will only happen because he wants EPL football and his agent has confirmed Arsenal’s proposal for the player.
