Arsenal 'complete' Martinez signing from Independiente

Arsenal have coughed up an outstanding transfer payment to Independiente for goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

The Gunners have finally paid a £440,000 transfer clause to Independiente TEN YEARS after making the arrangement.

Doble Amarilla reports Independiente have been chasing the final sum of a £1.35million deal agreed in 2010, claiming it was owed last November.

But Arsenal are thought to have argued Europa League games should not count towards the 27-year-old's total of 11 appearances this term.

Now, though, the wrangle is said to have been cleared up.
