Arsenal accept offer from Aston Villa for Emiliano Martinez

Arsenal have accepted a £16 million offer from Aston Villa for goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

The fee could rise to £20m with add-ons, with the 28-year-old Argentinian due to undergo a medical at Villa Park this weekend and discuss personal terms.

The structure of the deal allows Villa to keep back some resources for the pursuit of a forward, with a move for Milot Rashica at Werder Bremen on the cards. The German club want a fee in the region of £18.5m (€20m) for the Kosovo international, who was linked to RB Leipzig earlier this summer.
