Leeds still interested in Arsenal’s Emiliano Martinez

Leeds United are thought to be on the verge of adding a goalkeeper to their squad this winter.

Real Madrid’s Kiko Casilla is believed to be closing in on a switch to Elland Road, however, it appears the Whites have someone else on their radar as well.

According to a report by The Daily Mail, Leeds are still considering a January loan move for Arsenal’s Emiliano Martinez, although they will make a final decision in the coming days.


The 26-year-old was convinced by Unai Emery to remain at The Gunners this season, however, he has made just one appearance for the club and is below Petr Cech and Bernd Leno in the pecking order.

It is understood the shot-stopper wants to play Championship football this season and could see a switch to Leeds as ideal.

The Verdict:

Marcelo Bielsa is keen to add a new goalkeeper to his ranks as they look to continue their push for Premier League football.

Martinez could be an ideal signing for the Championship outfit and would almost immediately help to improve the position for the Whites.

However, with Casilla thought to be closing in on a switch to Elland Road, it remains to be seen which shot-stopper turns up.

Leeds fans – thoughts?
