MetiNews.Com - The Arsenal great joined several past and present stars of north London in messaging Emi Martinez ahead of his move to Aston Villa
Breaking News ! Arsenal legend Ian Wright has joined the growing list of Emi Martinez well wishers ahead of the goalkeeper's transfer to Aston Villa. Martinez, 27, is expected to complete a move to Villa Park after a deal worth around £20million was struck with Arsenal earlier this week. The Argentina international is set to take up the position of first choice goalkeeper under Dean Smith, with Tom Heaton's long-term injury forcing the club to dip into the transfer market.

In an emotional post on Instagram, Martinez said: “With my family we decided, 11 years at Arsenal and you work 10 years so hard, you leave through the front door today. “For me I could not be happier to leave through the front door with the Arsenal fanbase supporting me and the club. “I’m very grateful for the 11 years at Arsenal, even if it was a hard road for me and I suffer through my time here.
. Always one of us." Several of Martinez's Arsenal team-mates followed suit with Lucas Torreira adding: "The best in this new stage, friend. I'm going to miss you. I love you very much." Martinez will become Villa's third signing of the summer after deals for Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins, who scored on his debut against Burton Albion last night.
