Having confirmed yesterday that Wojciech Szczesny’s move to Roma was almost done, with just some paperwork to finalise, Arsene Wenger has revealed that another one of the club’s goalkeepers could be on his way out on loan.
Damian Martinez began last season as third choice behind Szczesny and new arrival David Ospina, and that hierarchy remains the same with Cech supplanting the Pole as the new season number 1.
The 22 year old Argentine made 4 Premier League and 2 Champions League appearances for the Gunners last season, before a late season loan move to Rotherham saw him tuck another 8 first team games under his belt.
He garnered plenty of praise from Rotherham fans for his performances, with one website going so far as to suggest he be named their player of the season.
However, with his first team chances at Arsenal slim this season bar an injury crisis, it looks as if he could spend time elsewhere this season.
Speaking at his press conference yesterday, Arsene Wenger said of his future, “That’s not decided yet, he could still go out on loan.”
Chances are he’ll depart once Ospina returns from his extended break and gets up to match fitness.
