Gelson Martins would be an excellent addition to the Arsenal team, Dharmesh Sheth has claimed.

The Portugal international is sure to be one of the hottest priorities in the summer transfer market.

Martins is available to sign on a free transfer this summer after the Portuguese talent cancelled his contract with Sporting Lisbon.

The Portuguese side are in turmoil and Martins is one of four players who has moved to terminate their deals due to just cause.

The 23-year-old would have commanded a significant transfer fee giving his rising status as a star of Portuguese football.

Martins netted 13 times in 52 games in all competitions last season to attract interest from Arsenal and some other clubs.

Arsenal are expected to sign Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira in a combined £46m deal.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth believes Martins would be a shrewd addition to the Gunners team on a free transfer.

“He would fit absolutely at Arsenal given what they have to spend,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

Arsenal finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on Champions League football for the second successive campaign.
