Arsenal prepare a new deal for impressive in demand star

The Telegraph is reporting that Arsenal is preparing a new contract for Emiliano Martinez despite interest from other Premier League sides.

The Argentinean has emerged as a new hero at the Emirates after helping the Gunners win the FA Cup and Community Shield while in goal.

His performances as he stood in for the injured Bernd Leno has been amazing and he could take over the number one role in goal at the Emirates.

The South American had claimed that he will have to leave Arsenal if he will not be given the chance to play regularly and it appears that the Gunners want to keep him now.

The report claims that although teams are looking to sign him this summer, the Gunners want to keep him and they are already planning on offering him a new deal.

Bernd Leno has returned from injury and the German will have expected that he will walk straight back into the first team.

However, Mikel Arteta opted to stick with Martinez in the Community Shield game against Liverpool and that might continue when the league season starts.

Leeds United are eyeing a move for him and there are other teams outside England who might take a chance on him as their number one if Arsenal makes him second choice again.

    Thanks to Arteta.
    He really wants both Goalkeepers to stay, he’s not interested in selling Leno either.
    The headache will be his, oh also AMN will be offered a new contract too.
    Good to see the club making a U-turn.
    Now we can only raise money from the sale of Lucas, Mateo or Alexander

    While I appreciate the defensive work, we defended for too long after going ahead which is not good enough. We should have both defended and when we have the ball, make use of it instead of giving it away carelessly. If Arteta had not been smart to push Maitland-Niles forward to run at the Liverpool defense on the left wing after making changes in the last 10 minutes of the game, we would have lost the match because Liverpool were beginning to force the winner. Arteta saw the signals for a possible defeat and made the changes, pushing Maitland-Niles from defensive work to offensive and that killed the Liverpool momentum. Well read Arteta👍👍

    It is quite unfortunate that fans allow themselves to be worked up regarding transfer ins and outs looking at transfer happenings in our team over the years, especially where the team has a mouthpiece.
    We would have signed over 20 players by now if we were to go by rumors in the media.
    It is therefore unfair to berate our transfer team based on hearings brought out by the media.
    Yes, I agree that the transfer window puts the fans on the edge but I think that we have to be rest assurred for now because we have MA in charge. He is ambitious and the right person to know the best for our team and he is going to fix it.

    Our best and most important signing was made some 8 months back when we signed Mikel Arteta. With. MA, regardless of whoever that comes in or leaves, our team is going to function much better than we did last season. He is a very good coach, excellent for us and I strongly believe this.
    I have my fingers crossed and waiting for the season to commence and for October 6th.
