According to Clarin via Sport Witness, Arsenal have paid a €500,000 bonus to Independiente for Emiliano Martinez‘s transfer.

In 2010, the keeper joined the Gunners for £1.35m and his contract included a €500,000 clause activated when he reaches 10 senior appearances.

In November last year, the Argentine club tried to claim the money, with Arsenal responding that they will pay only when the shot-stopper plays 10 games in the Premier League, stating that Europa League matches did not count.
