Huge boost for Premier League trio Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool for highly rated Portuguese star.
Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool set to battle it out for Gelson Martins.
According to Mirror, Premier League trio Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Sporting Lisbon’s Gelson Martins.
The Portuguese winger’s agent has downplayed rumours linking him with a move to Sporting’s arch rivals Benfica.
The 23-year-old’s future is now uncertain as a free agent and it leaves the door open to a move to the Premier League.
English giants Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool have been interested in signing Martins for a long time now and a proper offer from one of the trio would lure the winger away.
Martins’ agent Ulisses Santos wrote:
“Being the agent of Gelson Martins, I have as a top priority his tranquility, and maximum concentration to be able to do what he knows, professional football.”
“For this reason, and considering the sports media agenda has been very busy around his future, I come to inform you that Martins’ next club will not be SL Benfica.”
The EPL trio would also have to battle it out with other Non English clubs like Juventus – who are “The Kings of free transfers”.
