Arsenal might swoop for Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins

Arsenal might move for Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins.

That is according to Portuguese outlet O Jogo, who say the Gunners are weighing up a summer swoop for the flier.

Martins notched 13 goals and laid on a further 13 for his teammates as Sporting finished third in the Portuguese top flight.

Sporting are understandably keen to hold on to one of their most prized assets, but tensions are running high at the club after president Bruno de Carbalho threatened to suspend 19 squad members through Facebook in April.

Unai Emery is seeking a wide player as he bids to improve on Arsenal’s sixth-placed finish next term.

Martins is under contract until 2022 and has a £52.7million release clause.
