The 2022 World Cup and Golden Glove-winning goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is reportedly leaving Aston Villa this summer, and multiple Premier League clubs have set their eyes on him.

The 30-year-old Argentinian has emerged as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, particularly for his performances with the national team. His heroic saves have been vital to Argentina’s 2021 Copa America and the prestigious 2022 World Cup victories, enticing huge fans boost on live casino sites like .

Martinez made his Premier League debut for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger in 2014. His early days in the Premier League were difficult, as he struggled to bolster his place as Arsenal’s No. 1 goalkeeper choice. 

After spending eight years with Arsenal, Emiliano made the switch to Aston Villa in 2020 for a transfer fee of £16 million. Since then, he has made 109 appearances for the Lions. 

Although he failed to achieve anything substantial with his club, his performances have been rock solid. He was named Aston Villa’s Player of the Year in his debut season. 

In the current season, Martinez has made 33 appearances, keeping 11 clean sheets in total. 

The goalkeeper has expressed his desire to play in the Champions League. With Villa sitting in 8th place in the Premier League table, the dream seems too far-fetched for the next season unless he makes a switch to a top club.

Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly in hot pursuit of Emiliano Martinez’s signature, as reported by the Argentine publication TyC Sports. Nonetheless, Tottenham has the greatest desire to sign the World Cup-winning player.

Emiliano Martinez will have a hefty price tag

Emiliano still has four years remaining in his deal with the Claret and Blue. But the allure of playing for a top club in the Premier League might be too great to pass up.

Aston Villa has stated that the club will consider offers for the Argentinian, respecting his desire to depart from the club to play in the Champions League.

The goalkeeper won’t come cheap, however. Given the record transfers of Alisson Becker to Liverpool (£72 million) and Kepa Arrizabalaga to Chelsea (£67 million), Aston Villa can surely put a hefty price tag on their star player.

When it comes to goalkeepers, both Manchester United and Chelsea are considering other options as they prepare for the upcoming season. Spurs, meanwhile, will be shopping for a goalkeeper to replace Hugo Lloris and the club is favoured to sign the former Reading loanee.

Either way, it’ll be exciting to see “Dibu” continue his infamous taunts at opposition players in the Champions League.
