Arsene Wenger will not allow Emiliano Martinez leave the Emirates in the winter transfer window amidst serious interest in the goalkeeper, according to the Daily Star.
Martinez is currently Arsenal’s third choice goalkeeeper behind Petr Cech and David Ospina. He has been limited to a handful of appearances in the EFL cup games and with Arsenal out of the competition, he could now be confined to the bench for the remainder of the season.
Despite the fact that Martinez’s chances of regular football at Arsenal is very slim, The sun reckons that Wenger would not allow him leave the club in January.
It is claimed Wenger wants a competent third choice and will reject any offer for the Argentine. Wenger has made winning the Premier League his priority and doesn’t want anything to derail our chances of winning the competition.
Should any of Cech or Ospina suffer a serious injury, we could become very light in that department and Wenger wants to have a quality third choice option available to him should that happen.
Arsenal currently sit fourth on the Premier League table, nine points behind league leaders Chelsea and Wenger believes he needs a strong squad to chase the West London side.
Martinez who signed a new long term deal with us last year has made just four Premier League appearances since making his debut for us in 2014.
