Arsenal are thought to be in the transfer market for a new signings this summer transfer window as they try to assemble a solid team good enough to return into the Premier League top four next campaign.
The Gunners ended the season in the sixth position on the log last campaign as they missed out on UEFA Champions League place for the second term running before French tactician Arsene Wenger stepped aside at the conclusion of the season.
Arsenal credited with interest
The Emirates outfit have now been credited with an interest in landing the 23-year-old Gelson Martins recently as newly appointed head coach Unai Emery looks to bring in a quality player.
Now, Sheth has suggested that the Gunners are really close to a transfer deal to land the Portuguese winger this summer window.
Emery announced their second summer landing this transfer window a week ago when they sealed a transfer deal for safe hand Bernd Leno to the North London outfit from Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen.
