Arsenal are one of a number of clubs interested in Portugal winger Gelson Martins and are in advanced talks with Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to Sky sources.

The Gunners have also agreed a deal with Borussia Dortmund for defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, with the transfer expected to be formally announced on July 1.

Martins could be available on a free transfer as he is one of four Sporting Lisbon players who moved to terminate their contracts, citing ‘just cause’ after Sporting’s players were attacked at the club’s training ground last month.

The 23-year-old, who is part of Portugal’s World Cup squad, scored 10 goals in 42 appearances for Sporting last season.
