Just after Spanish international defender Hector Bellerin put pen to paper on a new contract, we have now completed a deal keeping another young player at The Emirates, goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, according to a report in The Daily Star.
The goalkeeper who has played in the EFL this season, joined Arsenal in 2010, and despite no real first team playing time in the league or other trophies, has now committed his future to Arsenal.
So far this season, the Argentine international has featured in two EFL games against Nottingham Forest and Reading, both of which we have won. We face Southampton next week in the same competition, so it’s likely Martinez will feature again.
Martinez has revealed he is very happy with the deal, and told the club’s official website:
“It feels amazing to be honest. I’ve been here six or seven years already. This opportunity to sign a new deal is a great achievement for me and my family. I’m very grateful and hope I can be here many, many years…”
Since his debut for Arsenal Martinez has played 10 times for Arsenal, with just four in the Premier League and currently, he is regarded as Arsene Wenger’s third choice keeper. He sits behind Arsenal number one, and league keeper, Petr Cech and David Ospina. who usually plays Champions League game for Arsenal but he’s a player who surely has a big future at the club.
