Wenger faces goalkeeper crisis after Valencia express interest

Image for Wenger faces goalkeeper crisis after Valencia express interest

Arsene Wenger could lose THREE goalkeepers during the summer transfer window as Valencia express an interest in Emiliano Martinez.

The third-choice goalkeeper is reportedly wanted by the La Liga club having sold two shot-stoppers themselves and see the 24-yar-old Argentine as their new number one.

Martinez has struggled to compete with the likes of Petr Cech and David Ospina, making a handful of appearances in the minor domestic competitions since joining the Gunners in 2012.

The 6’4’’ goalkeeper has spent most of his time out on loan and a move to Valencia will no doubt be tempting knowing he will feature regularly for the Spanish outfit next season.

Wenger now faces the prospect of losing a trio of goalkeepers this summer with Ospina attracting interest from Fenerbahce, and Juventus eyeing up a move for Wojciech Szczesny.

Should Martinez decide to leave, Wenger will surely have to recruit at least one goalkeeper in the upcoming weeks to compete with Cech next season.
