Arsenal ready to keep hold of Emiliano Martinez

Arsenal are ready to keep hold of Emiliano Martinez next season.

The Sun says the Gunners keeper, on-loan at Reading, is being monitored ahead of a return to the Emirates and being part of Unai Emery's first-team set-up.

Emery will replace Petr Cech at the end of the campaign when the Premier League legend hangs up his gloves.

And promoting Martinez, 26, will allow them to spend their budget elsewhere to strengthen Emery's squad.

Arsenal are expected to have a budget of just £40million if they fail to get into the Champions League.
