Highly rated Championship star in talks with Arsenal

The latest report has claimed that English Premier League club Arsenal are already in talks with Championship side Brentford over the signature of David Raya.

The bid by the Gunners to bring in the star player is to replace Emiliano Martinez who is reportedly on the verge of completing a move to Aston Villa with claims that he has already held medical on Saturday evening and would be announced soon.

The North London outfit will cash in £20 million from the sale of the Argentina international and that will be more than enough to bring David Raya from the Championship side.

Emiliano Martinez is keen on having a regular first-team appearance at the Emirates Stadium but that cannot be promised him by manager Mikel Arteta who favours German goalkeeper Bernd Leno ahead.

Howbeit, Emiliano Martinez will not be forgotten at Arsenal for helping to deliver the FA Cup title to make the first few months of Mikel Arteta in charge of Arsenal worth it.

Meanwhile, Brentford is not willing to let go of David Raya but they are helpless as the player is also keen on the move while the Championship side must cash in to have some financial stability.

Arsenal started the Premier League campaign with Bernd Leno recording a clean sheet against Fulham in the 3-0 win.
