Leeds should consider Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, he was linked January 2019

Leeds United will hope that next season they are preparing for life in the Premier League, as they sit top of the Championship table for whenever football can safely be resumed.

The Yorkshire giants will hope they can get over the line for promotion and they will have some big transfer decisions to make.

One intriguing area will certainly be in goal, where experienced 33-year-old Kiko Casilla is still prone to errors and there is also impressive loanee Illan Meslier who may be signed on a permanent basis (Mirror).

Leeds should consider looking at potential goalkeeper targets for next season and one individual they should place back on their radar is Arsenal’s Emiliano Martinez.

According to the Daily Mail in January 2019, Leeds were interested in taking Martinez on loan, but he ended up joining Reading for the second half of the season and impressed.

 

The 27-year-old has been the second-choice option at the Emirates Stadium this season and Leeds’ director of football should consider him, especially due to fresh reports regarding Arsenal.

The Chronicle has reported that Arsenal are interested in a summer move for Newcastle United shot-stopper Freddie Woodman, who is currently out on loan at Swansea City.

If English goalkeeper Woodman ends up in North London, it could be an ideal opportunity for Leeds to try snap up former target Martinez.

Martinez has been the understudy to Bernd Leno this season, but has done a decent job whenever called upon and must be desperate for a first-team shot somewhere.

The £20,000-a-week Argentine star (Spotrac) is somehow that is still yet to fill his whole potential and is a great age for a goalkeeper.

He played in Arsenal’s 1-0 Carabao Cup win over Leeds earlier this season and has five clean sheets in 11 appearances this season, with six of them coming on the European stage in the Europa League.
