Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a move for Sporting Lisbon’s Gelson Martins, according to Portuguese publication O Jogo.

The winger has been attracting the attention of those at the Emirates Stadium, as well as Italian giants Juventus.

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

Sporting are keen to keep hold of their star man, but could be resigned to losing him to this summer.

The 23-year-old is under contract until 2022, but reportedly has a £52.7million release clause in his deal, meaning he could be free to speak to other clubs if that’s met.

Unai Emery is thought to be keen on bolstering his attacking options as he sets his side up for the upcoming season.
