Bayern Munich Gunning for Gelson Martins


The 23-year-old Sporting CP forward Gelson Martins is a subject of intense transfer interest from some of Europe’s top sides.

A youth academy product who made a swift break into the Sporting CP first team over the past couple of season is now a well-established member of Jorge Jesus’ side.

His creativity and technical ability – complemented by a flamboyant and versatile style of play – made him a hotly desired asset currently on the radar of Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

The latest reports coming from the Portuguese press Ojogo claim that Bayern Munich are also keen on the Portuguese international.

The Bavarians are in the hunt for long-term replacements for Ribery and Robben and have reportedly identified Martins as an ideal candidate.
