Some West Ham fans have called for David Moyes to sign Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez this summer.

The Hammers have plenty of goalkeeping options. Lukasz Fabianski is David Moyes’s undisputed number one.

Meanwhile, Darren Randolph, Joseph Anang and Nathan Trott will all be battling it out for the number two spot.

Fabianski is 35 now, however. And the experienced Pole just hasn’t looked the same after returning from injury.

The former Arsenal and Swansea stopper’s kicking has become suspect and he certainly doesn’t command his penalty area with the same authority that he once did.

And some West Ham fans are calling for Gunners ace Emiliano Martinez to be brought to the London Stadium this summer…


The Hammers signing the 27-year-old Argentinian is highly unlikely, however. Then 6ft 5in stopper has been superb for Arsenal this season.

Martinez filled in for Bernd Leno for Arsenal’s final nine Premier league games after the German sustained a serious a knee ligament injury against Brighton on June 20th.

And the giant goalkeeper really made a huge impression. He let in just nine goals in those Premier League outings, keeping three clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).

Martinez played a key role in Arsenal’s FA Cup success as well. And Mikel Arteta will surely not allow the 27-year-old to leave the Emirates this summer.

So let’s not get our hopes up. Moyes bringing the Arsenal man to West Ham this summer is extremely unlikely.

Who knows though? Stranger things have happened in football.
