Hull City are interested in signing Damian Emiliano Martinez in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun (print edition, page 65, Sunday, August 7, 2016).

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Hull want to sign the 23-year-old goalkeeper on a loan deal.

The Tigers are looking for a goalkeeper in the wake of the injury suffered by first-choice custodian Allan McGregor.

McGregor, who is 34 years of age, has been ruled out of action for six months due to a back injury, claims The Sun (print edition, page 65, Sunday, August 7, 2016).

Good move?

Martinez is a very talented and promising goalkeeper, and he would be a good signing for Hull.

The Argentine had a loan spell at Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers last season.

It makes sense for the 23-year-old to now find a Premier League club in order to develop himself.

Martinez is not going to be the first choice at Arsenal this coming season, and if Hull are willing to make him their number one between the posts, then the Argentine should move to the Tigers.
