Credible Journalist claims Leeds United “like” Arsenal star

Leeds United writer for The Athletic, Phil Hay, is claiming that the Whites like Arsenal goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez.

Martinez has been Arsenal’s first choice since Bernd Leno got injured in the Gunners’ match against Brighton.

The Argentinean has been in fantastic form in goal for the Gunners so far, but when Leno is back to full fitness, he is likely to become the club’s second choice again.

But his performances in goal so far will have caught the attention of several top-flight teams, and Hay is claiming that Leeds might move for him.

Leeds United have just secured their return to the Premier League after 16 years in the lower divisions of English football.

Being one of the most recognisable teams in England, they have been tipped to thrive in the English top flight.

They, however, know that they will have to make good signings for them to survive and Martinez might be one.

Should they make their move, it will be interesting to see if the Gunners will allow him to leave.

Martinez has helped Arsenal reach the final of the FA Cup this season and if he wins it with the team, it will make him even more in demand by other teams.

    I somehow doubt that it would happen,they have their number one GK returning from injury and 3 days ago they signed their french number 2 on a 3/4 years contract who was on loan from Lorient,in their last 10 games he kept 7 clean sheets!

    Kai. He’s going nowhere. Better than De Gea

    he will leave to play every week end, deserves it; a waist at U23 for ages.

  4. Lenohappy says:

    He should leave, he’s too good to be a number 2, even if he wants to be number 2, it should be to a legend maybe like Buffon or Neur not Leno who he’s arguably better than.

    If we do not reach Europe, keeping two keepers of that quality happy would be difficult. If we do, one can play Europe and cups, the other would play PL.
    With that said, Europe or not, I am not suggesting to sell, any of our two main keepers unless we can get a ridiculous fee.
    They are better than many overrated keepers at other clubs.
