Emi Martinez says that it’s time for clarity over his Arsenal future, and that it’s now or never when it comes to assessing his next career move.
The 26 year old has been with the Gunners since 2012, but in that time has only made 14 appearances in all competitions.
He’s currently on loan at Reading, and gaining plaudits for his performances as the Royals battle against relegation, but what happens this summer remains up in the air.
He spoke recently about how he’d been promised games this season, but with Bernd Leno and Petr Cech sharing the first team duties, another loan spell was required, and he’s now considering what comes next.
“I’ve been around a lot, but for me it’s now time to settle in one place,” he told Charles Watts at Goal.
“I’m at an age now where I have a newborn baby and me and my wife want to settle. I’m tired of going on loan.
“Obviously I love Arsenal, but it’s time for me to make it there or go somewhere else.”
If given the choice though, it sounds as if he’d be quite happy to remain an Arsenal player, even if was as second choice to Leno.
“My dream is to play for Arsenal, I’ve always said that and I believe I have everything that a keeper needs to play for Arsenal,” he said.
“If they don’t trust me, then I will have to move away and the Arsenal fans will understand.
“But I believe I should have the chance to show how good I am at Arsenal.”
