Arsenal are reportedly preparing a fresh bid for Brentford goalkeeper David Raya to potentially replace Emiliano Martinez who is closing in on a move to Aston Villa.

The 28-year-old Argentine filled the boots of Bernd Leno in the latter stages of last season and helped the club lift their 14th FA Cup. Martinez also got the nod ahead of Leno, who was available for selection, in their Community Shield win over Liverpool a fortnight ago.

However, Mikel Arteta reverted back to old ways by starting Leno in Arsenal’s 3-0 away against Fulham, while Martinez was given permission by the club to travel to the Midlands ahead of a medical with Aston Villa who have had a £16million offer accepted by the Gunners.

With Martinez expected to complete his move to Villa in days, The Sun (via Metro) claim Arsenal are ready to launch a £10million offer for Raya, who has been earmarked as an understudy to Leno this season.
