Emiliano Martinez will spend the upcoming season on loan at La Liga outfit Getafe.

The 24-year-old has been Arsenal’s third choice keeper for the last two seasons and has made 50 appearances in the first team since moving to London from Argentina in 2010.

The move to Spain represents the fifth loan spell of his career after spells spent at Oxford United, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United and Wolves.

Hopefully, he’ll garner some good experience in Spain playing against top quality opposition in some of the world’s most famous arenas.

There’s no doubt that Arsene Wenger rates Martinez and sees him as a long-term option when David Ospina, who this week said he’ll be staying at Arsenal, and Petr Cech move on.

Good luck to you Emi.
