Aston Villa has reportedly signed goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez from fellow Premier League club side Arsenal for £17m.

The 28-year-old Argentine, who made 23 appearances last season and played in the Gunners’ FA Cup final win over Chelsea, has just signed a four-year deal.

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith said Emiliano Martinez will be a “key player for our club for the long term”.

“It is rare to be able to buy a top-class goalkeeper who hasn’t yet reached their peak age,” Aston Villa manager added.

“We know how highly Arsenal rated him and we watched his outstanding performances last season in a trophy-winning, top side.”

Emiliano Martinez is Villa’s third recruit of the summer after striker Ollie Watkins signed from Brentford for a club-record fee and right-back Matty Cash arrived from Nottingham Forest.
