Emiliano Martinez Out of Arsenal, on the Verge of signing for Aston Villa

Emiliano Martinez

Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is on the verge of signing for Aston Villa. Martinez is having a medical at Aston Villa before completing a £20m move.

The 28 year-old Argentine goalkeeper moved to the Emirates stadium at the age of 16, and has shown over the years how good he his.

Arsenal fc manager Mikel Arteta left him out of the squad in their opening league game against Fulham on Saturday. Arteta decided that Bernd Leno would be his first choice. This decision of arsenal manager to let Emiliano Martinez go might come to haunt the club later on.

Arsenal fc is letting a goalkeeper like Emiliano Martinez go without any replacement. Over the years Arsenal FC have produced great goalkeepers, both first and second choice, but for the club to depend on only one quality goalkeeper this season, could turn out to be a bad choice. We can only hope that Mikel Arteta is not making a huge mistake letting Martinez go.

The Argentine will be Aston Villa’s third signing this season. Emiliano Martinez helped Arsenal to win the FA cup as he replaced Leno. He was also in goal for Arsenal as the club went on and beat Liverpool on penalties in the community shield. I hope Martinez go on and give his best for Aston Villa and for his career.
