Sporting CP star player Gelson Martins has been heavily linked with a move away from the club after he emerged as a target for Liverpool.
However, there are new claims that Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal have entered the race for the player’s signature and will try snatching him away from Liverpool’s grips.
Arsenal are about losing Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United any moment from now, and manager Arsene Wenger is in the market for a replacement for the Chilean star.
Samba youngster Malcolm has been linked with the North Londoners in recent times, but Bordeaux made it known that no offer is on the table yet for the Brazilian.
And according to new reports, Gelson has caught the attention of the management at Arsenal, and they are now considering a move for the talented 22-year-old.
The player has a £53m release clause in his current contract at Sporting and has evolved into one of the most important members of the club.
The youngster was also superb in the Champions League this season, and he proved he can perform well anywhere he finds himself.
Recently, there were claims from Portugal that Liverpool have offered a contract to Martins, and it appears the player himself is keen on moving to the premier league.
The Merseyside club sold Phillipe Coutinho to Barcelona few days back and are expected to sign a new player before the closure of the ongoing winter transfer window.
