Emiliano Martinez inks fresh Arsenal contract

Martinez commits future to Arsenal

Arsenal's third-choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has committed his future to the club on a long-term contract. The Argentine has featured in the club's EFL Cup campaign this term.

Martinez, 24, has appeared in just 10 outings for the senior side since making his debut in the 2012-2013 season.

Despite being behind the likes of Petr Cech and David Ospine for the number one role, the shot-stopper has inked a fresh contract at the Emirates with the view to earning a regular place in the future.

"If you look at him, I personally see all the top qualities that a goalkeeper needs," manager Arsene Wenger told Arsenal Player. "I am very happy that he committed, because I think he is the future goalkeeper at this club."

Martinez has kept two cleansheets in the League Cup this term, and he will look to maintain this record when his side take on Southampton in the quarter-final stage next week.
