Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is reportedly on the verge of joining Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The 22-year-old is poised to seal a season-long loan move today, the Championship club have confirmed.
Jackett has also confirmed that Wolves have a verbal agreement with @Arsenal for the loan of Emiliano Martínez. Hopefully completed today.

Martinez has made just eight appearances in four seasons at the Emirates Stadium, and his first-team chances were further harmed by the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea in June.
Wojciech Szczesny has also left Arsenal’s goalkeeping ranks this summer, joining Italian giants Roma for the 2015-16 campaign after acknowledging that Cech and David Ospina were ahead in the pecking order.
However, the Chelsea legend endured a torrid Premier League debut for the Gunners on Sunday as he was arguably at fault for both goals in West Ham United’s shock 2-0 away victory.
Martinez has previously spent loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday, Oxford United and Rotherham United.
