Aston Villa step up move for £20m Martinez as Arsenal contract talks stall

The Gunners goalkeeper has been in discussions over a new deal at Emirates Stadium but would earn more should he head to Villa Park

Arsenal are mulling over a second offer from Aston Villa for Emiliano Martinez.

The Midlands side submitted an offer, which is believed to be in excess of £15 million ($19m), for the 28-year-old earlier this week and have yet to learn whether it has been accepted. Their first bid for Martinez, which had arrived earlier in the summer, had been rejected by the Gunners.

Arsenal are believed to value their goalkeeper, who came into the side for the injured Bernd Leno towards the end of last season and played such a key role in the FA Cup success, at around £20m ($26m).
