Arsenal and Manchester United have both been linked with Sporting winger, Gelson Martins.

The 21-year-old has assisted nine goals and scored two in 15 Liga Nos appearances this season, as well as scored one in two Taça CTT games. He also has two caps for Portugal and has represented them from an u18 level.

Manchester United are the main club being linked after former PSV Eindhoven star, Memphis Depay, looks as if he could leave in January after only signing with the club in 2015. However, Arsenal, as usual, are also being reported to want him.

Martins is contracted with Sporting until 2021 so it doesn’t seem as if the Portuguese club, who currently have Joel Campbell on loan, want to let him go easily.

Are Arsenal interested? It’s one of those rumours that could go either way. He’s young and we do seem to be getting linked with wingers this window. However, it appears, if anyone, United are the team in the driver’s seat.
