MARTINEZ NOT GUARANTEED TO BE ‘AUTOMATIC NO 1′


He’s ready to play, whether he’s our automatic No 1 depends on what he does in training and matches. He played against us a couple of weeks ago and he played in the Community Shield, so he’s probably had more games than our goalkeepers. In terms of readiness, he’s 100%.

SMITH THRILLED TO LAND MARTINEZ


We know how highly Arsenal rated him and we watched his outstanding performances last season in a trophy-winning top side.
We moved for Emi when we saw the opportunity, as it is rare to be able to buy a top class goalkeeper who hasn’t yet reached their peak age and who can therefore be a key player for our club for the long term.

TORINO COMPLICATE TORREIRA DEAL

Talks continue between Arsenal and Serie A side Torino over midfielder Lucas Torreira, but it’s been reported that the Italian side are complicating the negotiations.

Torreira has been told by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta that he has little future at the Emirates this season, and the player has been constantly linked with a move back to Italy.

Torino look like the most serious suitor for his services, but The Daily Star reports that the Granata are looking to insert a myriad of clauses into the deal.

It’s reported that Torino would take the Uruguayan on loan initially, and would only keep Torreira on a permanent basis if a string of objectives are met.

These reportedly include qualifying for the Europa League, registering a specific number of appearances, goals and assists, and receiving a certain amount of international call-ups.

Arsenal are demanding £22m for the 24-year-old.

SEAMAN BELIEVES GUNNERS CAN MAKE TOP FOUR

Arsenal legend David Seaman believes his old side can finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

Seaman was interviewed by Talksport, and states that Mikel Arteta’s side can break into the top four this season. 

“The end of last season was good. The start of this season has been great,” he said. “I think realistically we are looking at top four. 

“I think that will be a great season. We still need a couple of players. We are still looking for a strong holding midfield player. That Patrick Vieira or Yaya Toure type.” 

Arsenal last finished in the top four in the 2015-16 season, when they finished second.
