Emiliano Martinez: Aston Villa sign Arsenal goalkeeper


On Saturday that the Gunners had accepted a £16m offer from Villa which could rise to £20m with add-ons.

Martinez, who had two years remaining on his Arsenal contract, impressed when he stepped in for Bernd Leno when the German was injured following June’s Premier League restart, but was absent from the matchday squad for the opening weekend win at Fulham.

The Argentine kept nine clean sheets in 23 games last season and helped Arsenal win the FA Cup, and also started in their Community Shield triumph over Liverpool at the start of 2020/21.
