Arsenal supervisor, Mikel Arteta, has left Emi Martinez for his or her journey to Fulham on Saturday.
The Gunners face the newly-promoted aspect within the Premier League opener by 12.45 pm.
Bernd Leno will begin in objective for Arsenal, as Martinez is near sealing his exit.
Brighton have joined Aston Villa within the race to signal the Argentine, in keeping with the UK Guardian.
Villa have been favourites to land Martínez who will price round £20m.
The Midlands membership bid £15m this week, however Brighton have exceeded their supply and Martínez won’t face Fulham with switch talks ongoing.
Martínez was a revelation when he deputised for the injured Leno on the again finish of final season, serving to Arsenal to victory within the FA Cup closing, and desires No 1 standing after a decade as a deputy or on mortgage. However Mikel Arteta has been unwilling to ensure that to both of his keepers and Martínez, 28 and determined for normal soccer, now appears to be like sure to go away.
