Arsenal are believed to be close to signing 23-year-old Gelson Martins from Sporting Lisbon, according to Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth as reported by The Sport Review.
The Gunners are keen for a squad overhaul this summer under new manager Unai Emery and are looking to bring several new faces into the club after missing out of a top four finish in the Premier League last season.
Emery’s side have been linked with Martins in recent weeks and now, Sky Sports News reporter Sheth has said that the Gunners are closing on the Portuguese winger.
Gelson looks close. The transfer fits Emery’s profile. It fits Arsenal’s limited transfer budget too.
Arsenal confirmed their second signing of the summer last week when they tied up a deal to bring goalkeeper Bernd Leno to the club from Bayer Leverkusen.
