Martinez set for Wolves loan move

first_imgWolves are close to signing Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez on a season-long loan. Press Association Incidentally, former Arsenal striker Benik Afobe is already at Wolves, who tweeted: “(Manager Kenny) Jackett has confirmed that Wolves have a verbal agreement with @Arsenal for the loan of Emiliano Martinez. Hopefully completed today.” Martinez was last season loaned to Wolves’ Championship rivals Rotherham, whose manager Steve Evans said: “(He was) great for us. “We’re going to be watching Emi on Match of the Day in six to eight months and then for a number of years as Arsenal’s No 1.” center_img The 22-year-old Argentinian has little hope of first-team football under Arsene Wenger following the £10million arrival of Petr Cech and the fine form of David Ospina last season. Martinez’s departure would, however, also represent a risk for Wenger – Wojciech Szczesny has already been loaned to Roma and Martinez’s departure would leave Arsenal with only two senior goalkeepers. last_img
