Arsenal Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is having a medical at Aston Villa before completing a £20m move.
Martinez is on the verge of signing for Villa after Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta decided Bernd Leno would be his first choice this term.
He was left out in the Arsenal squad in their opening league game against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
The 28-year-old shot stopper will be Villa’s third recruit of the summer after club record signing striker Ollie Watkins joined from Brentford and right-back Matty Cash arrived from Nottingham Forest.
Martinez replaced Leno and went on to impress for Arsenal who went on to win the FA Cup.
Also, he was in goal as Arsenal beat Premier League champions Liverpool on penalties in the Community Shield a fortnight ago.
