Arsenal Reportedly Offered to Sign PSG's Goalkeeper Areola on Loan

However, Arteta's isn't prepared to promise Martinez the first team shirt just yet and the Daily Mail says Aston Villa are pushing to sign the Argentinean after submitting a second offer worth around £15m.

Martinez literally grabbed his chance with both hands when Leno picked up an injury, the Argentinian shot-stopper went on to put on a terrific display in goal which helped Arsenal win the FA cup and the Community Shield.

Villa are in the market for a new goalkeeper after Pepe Reina's loan spell ended and the Spaniard signed for Italian club Lazio.

According to The Independent, Mikel Arteta's side contacted Martinez after failing to persuade him to remain as Bernd Leno's deputy.

Dean Smith wants to bring in a new goalkeeper and an agreement has been reached with Arsenal, who were demanding £20m for Martinez.

Authorities also announced that a man had been arrested on two counts of arson in connection with a fire in southern Oregon. The school and volunteer fire station - with the engine still inside - were destroyed. "Thank God, we got a wind shift".

Martinez has also rejected Arsenal's latest contract offer so the Gunners could decide to cash-in while his stock is high but only if they are able to secure a replacement and Raya has emerged as a potential target.

He told Argentine radio station Continental last month: "I have shown the club that I can play for them and when I return next season, I need to have more games".

"I won't stop until I get that and if I don't play for Arsenal, then clearly, I would move on".

Martinez was left out of Arsenal's squad for their 3-0 victory against Fulham on the opening day of the Premier League season.
