Arsenal to sanction first summer sale

If emerging reports are anything to go by, then Emiliano Martinez will be the first player to bid goodbye to Arsenal as he is reported to have agreed on personal terms with Aston Villa.

The Argentina international has been in the news for a couple of weeks over his future at the Emirates Stadium despite enjoying some playing time during the absence of Bernd Leno.

Emiliano Martinez did not only get the opportunity but he proved he can be trusted by the club after an impressive performance to help the team with the FA Cup title.

Despite his impressive showing, he is not certain of regular playing time in the new season with the return of Bernd Leno and that seems to be forcing him out of the club this term.

The Independent reports that Emiliano Martinez will join Aston Villa on a four-year deal worth £60,000-per-week but the fee agreed with the Gunners is still unknown as an initial £15 million bid was rejected earlier.

It is understood that the North London outfit value Emiliano Martinez at £20 million and will not want to accept any fee less from Aston Villa following his performance in the just-concluded season that has kept him in the spotlight.
