Premier League survivors want Arsenal man, but he can only leave if one condition is met

The Athletic claims that Aston Villa has made a second bid for Arsenal goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez and it is close to the Gunner’s valuation of the Argentinean.

Arsenal reportedly wants £20 million for the impressive goalie as they continue to delay deciding who will be their first choice heading into the new season.

Villa managed to survive relegation from the Premier League on the final day of last season and they want to have a better campaign this time around.

They had to borrow Pepe Reina from AC Milan to finish last season when Tom Heaton sustained a long-term injury.

Martinez has now emerged as their top goalkeeping target, but they will only allow him to leave the Emirates when they have signed a replacement.

If Arsenal’s asking price is met, they will be able to land another goalkeeper to become the second choice to Bernd Leno.

Brentford’s David Raya is one goalie that has been linked with a move to the Emirates in recent weeks.

Arteta is yet to decide on which of his goalkeeper will be his first choice and it will be interesting to see if he will truly allow Martinez to leave for the right price.

Leno is one of the best goalies in the Premier League, but the question will be: “can the club get a new deputy as good as Martinez?”

  1. Keep them both, It’s a long season and Leno is just back from a serious knee injury. If either is not happy come then end of the season then they can move on.

    We need money it’s simple as Stan isnt going to lend us £100m to buy Aouer and Partey. We had funds probably about £40m budget and £22m has went to Gabriel, £14m Mari and Soares wage.

    Willian takes Mhikis wage.

    Torreira to Torino £24m.
    Sokratis to Napoli £4m.
    Chambers to Fulham £12m.
    Kolasnic to Shalke £12m.

    (£50m+ from those sales)
    That covers Thomas Partey fee and his wage when them 4 leave.

    Looks like Ozil and Guendouzi are staying along with Holding & AMN.

    As much as I dont want him to go but Hector could fetch us £40m from PSG. Just hold out and they will pay. AMN and Soares can play RB.

    Add Elneny for £7m and we have almost enough to probably bid higher for Aouer. He might not want to come though aswell as Partey so we will see.
