Leeds United looking to make a move for unsettled Arsenal star

Emiliano Martinez might end up as a player of Leeds United this summer as the Premier League new boys continue to monitor his development.

The Argentinean finally got his chance to play for Arsenal this year and he didn’t disappoint.

In his short time in goal after Bernd Leno got injured, he has helped Arsenal win the FA Cup and FA Community Shield.

Leno is back to full fitness and reports claim that the German remains Arsenal’s number one goalie and the Gunners are prepared to listen to offers for Martinez.

Mail Online is claiming that Leeds United remain keen on the South American and Marcelo Bielsa is closely monitoring developments around his future.

The report claims that the Whites are looking to replace Kiko Casilla who has been underwhelming for them and Martinez is their target.

The Mail also claims that Arsenal is prepared to sell him this summer and the Gunners will listen to offers of around £20m for him.

Arteta faces a tough decision on which goalkeeper will man the post at the Emirates this season as both of the club’s keepers don’t want to be the second choice.

Fans are also divided about which goalie is the better one and it will be interesting to see who ends up as the number one this season.

    Can’t really blame him ,if he thinks he will be number 2 this coming season then obviously after his heroics at the end of last season he probably deserves to be playing week in well out .
    Sky reporting that Arsenal want to keep AMN and are goi g to offer him a new contract ,brilliant news TBH

    1. jon fox says:

      On AMN , assuming Sky have it correct, then that IS indeed great news. I suspect AMN has proved himself at last and just in time to avoid an unfortunate, for club AND player, sale.

  2. Reggie says:

    Ive read AMN and Emi are to be offered a new contract.

    1. jon fox says:

      Reggie, where have you read this please? MANY OF US HOPE BOTH STAY AND ARE DESPERATE FOR POSITIVE NEWS ON BOTH.

    2. Reggie says:

      Ive read it Jon on my scouting about. Arsenal are now not selling AMN and Emi is to be offered a new contract as well. As it should be jon. Fans would not be happy if we sold either and rightly so.

  3. Reggie says:

    Google them both jon and there are rumours building to support that. We can hope.

    1. Reggie says:

      Sky sports now saying same thing about AMN.

  4. Joe Allysons says:

    Honestly, except for Sokratis & Kolasinac, I don’t think any player in the current squad is worth less than 25 million. And the 25m for me would be holding and Chambers. I’m infuriated when I see news about AMN for 20m ,Emi for 20m , Bellerin for 20m . I wouldn’t sell any of those 3 for less than 35m . Do you know how much they’d cost if we were trying to buy them? I don’t know how arsenal board members set up these valuations.

    Laca for 30m ,are you kidding me? Do you know how much we’d be charged if we were trying to sign him? It looks like there’s this conviction that arsenal players should be cheap.

  5. JJ Pawn says:

    These are players from the academy who are doing well. We should keep them both, and start Emi, who is in brilliant form. I love his emotional commitment to the team.

    AMN is a good player. He he could the weapon in the middle, his preferred role. He loves Arsenal too.

    These are young player making a mark. We should sign them to five year contract. If they do not pan out, there is plenty of time to sell.

    If have to sell, then have a buy back clause, at our discretion, at price we set now. The logic here is that we need money to get the mid-field general. This is the season where teams are broke and have to sell for less money than normal, so get that player now, but not by selling the future.

    Seeing Emi perform, I think Wenger was right about this goal keeper all along, and he would be starting now for the great old coach if he were still here.

  6. Jax says:

    In what way is Emi unsettled? He’s only just made the statement ‘I LOVE THIS CLUB’, and is currently (reportedly) negotiating an upgraded and well deserved wage deal.
    That’s a typical Daily Mail headline which denigrates your pretty good blog.
