Emiliano Martinez is set to join Championship side Reading on loan for the rest of the season.
The Argentine keeper’s representatives revealed the move on Instagram post last night in a post that showed the 26-year-old driving to the Madejski Stadium.
Earlier this season, rumours circulated that Martinez, who has been number three at the Emirates this season, was being looked at by French side Rennes.

Martinez, who joined the Gunners in 2010, spent last season on loan with Spanish side Getafe where he made six appearances. He’s previously had spells with Oxford United, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United and Wolves.
The Argentine has made one appearance for Unai Emery so far this campaign, keeping a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Qarabag earlier this month.
It’ll be interesting to see who is handed the responsibility of backing up Petr Cech and Bernd Leno for the rest of the season.
