Interest in Martins remains but Reds will face Arsenal competition for main man

Liverpool are still showing huge interest in Sporting CP winger Gelson Martins with the player officially available according to

The 22 year old does have something about him but it remains to be seen whether he can ply that at the hardest level going. There’s always that chance he could do a “Sanches” but with Klopp as mentor there aren’t many better to help him.

Whether Liverpool decide to go in for him in January remains to be seen though. One who definitely won’t be going anywhere this month is Monaco’s Lemar. A player that will demand a huge transfer fee whether in January or more likely in the summer it appears Liverpool are in no rush to spend the Countinho funds just yet.

They will face fierce competition from Arsenal though, and if their interest remains at the end of the season, and with Arsenal reportedly making a bid towards the end of the last window, it may be his favoured choice. Lack of Champions League football for Arsenal though (although plenty of points to play for yet, it seems unlikely they’ll qualify now) should put Liverpool in a strong position should the youngster not fancy the London smog.
