Emiliano Martinez, the custodian for Aston Villa, is apparently being considered by Chelsea this summer, despite the fact that they are aware a substantial money will likely be required to complete the transfer
The Argentinean player has been outstanding for Villa this season and significantly contributed to his nation’s World Cup victory back in December. Martinez is currently one of Chelsea’s goals to bolster their goalkeeping, along with players like David Raya and Andre Onana, according to Football Insider.
Given that Villa looks to be on the rise under Unai Emery, convincing the club to go with such a crucial player won’t be simple.
However, given the recent ineffectiveness of both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy, Chelsea needs to add a custodian this summer. The west London giants have had a really bad season overall, so plenty of changes will be needed this summer, and signing Martinez seems like a decent place to start.
Emiliano’s contract with the Claret and Blue has four more years to run. However, the appeal of joining a premier league powerhouse may be too big to resist.
In order to respect the Argentinian’s wish to leave the club and play in the Champions League, Aston Villa has said that the club will take offers for him into consideration.
