Arsenal is on the frontline to maneuver every possible links to rejuvenate the squad, from the goalkeeping section to the striking, and even to the technical bench. Maybe every new face at Arsenal is a bundle of joy to the head-coach, who is agitated everyday with the link of new names to the Emirates stadium. This time, he wants the goal posts be with one that he has seen as the potential replacement for the Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
The coming in of the German international Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018 was a dream replacement for Petr Cech. Leno has so far rose in ranks and is now the number one for Arsenal. This has seen Martinez lose the vipes of having a regular chance of playing for Arsenal again. He has been struggling to convince the available coaches that maybe he can perform, but Arteta has not given attention to benefits of doubt.
He has proposed to let go Martinez, and have a chance to sign his precious target David Raya Martin. The Spanish Raya is the number one Brentford goalkeeper, 24 years of age, whose kind of display in the posts has caught and impressed the eyes of the Arsenal manager. He sits to be a future threat to the clubs all over the world, and Arteta can't wait to bring Martin to the Emirates stadium.
Henceforth, the youngstar is to be a replacement for the ageing Martinez, 27 years old currently, and whose future at Arsenal is in limpo. Arteta's request was easily backed up by the club management, and we hope very soon the deal will be finalized.
About Martinez, Arteta said, "He is a good player in goal. He was instrumental from the Covid-19 break when Leno was injured, and he helped us upto the FA cup final. His display is great. Being great and lacking regular time of play will be a waste to someone's career."
"I wish he gets a place to settle so that he can't age when his career has not been manifested much". Though Arteta's suggestions are not malicious, he has done it indirectly to show that Martinez's services are limited at North London. He can try a place where he can be the best and have long playing time for his career to grow and gain much experience before he is old.
