Emi Martinez declares his love for Aston Villa amid Spurs interest

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has expressed contentment with his current team despite increasing attention from leading European football clubs

As the summer transfer window approaches, many top football clubs are in the market for a new goalkeeper, and as a result, there has been considerable interest in

Emiliano Martinez

, the World Cup-winning goalkeeper and current Aston Villa player. Since his move from Arsenal in 2020, the 30-year-old has consistently improved, leading to frequent speculation about his future.

But despite being linked with a move away, Martinez has insisted he is very happy at Villa Park, via The Mirror: 

“My career went through the roof since I joined the club. I’ve always said I’m grateful to this club and I love being here.

“My family is happy at the club, my boy is obsessed with playing football and he plays for the under-6s in the academy. We’re loving our time here and hopefully there are many years to come.”

Martinez never had the opportunity to fully showcase his abilities during his time in north London, making his transfer to Aston Villa an ideal opportunity for him to do so.

As a result of his outstanding performances, he has become the first-choice goalkeeper for Argentina and is now garnering attention from Tottenham, Arsenal's rivals, and even Italian Serie A powerhouse Juventus, who have a strategy in place to secure his services.

Villa's 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend saw the Argentine claim his 33rd clean sheet in 99 league games for the club, surpassing the efforts of both Brad Friedel and Mark Bosnich, which he described as a 'great feeling': 

“If we had won 3-1, I would go home and not be able to sleep for hours because I always think about what I could have done better to keep the clean sheet. I’m very ambitious, I’m so driven to improve. I try to transmit that to the back four and to the starting XI.”
