Arsenal on red alert as La Liga giants in negotiations for long-time target

Arsenal seems set to miss out on the signature of Portugal international Gelson Martins, with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid now leading the hunt to sign the player.
.
The Spanish nationwide daily sports newspaper Mundo Deportivo claims that the Spanish club have held talks over a deal and remain in talks with Sporting for the player.
.
Gelson is one of many players to terminate their contracts with the Portuguese giants, meaning he is available for free this summer.
.
The report states that Atletico Madrid are still in talks with Liga NOS side over a deal, in a similar reason to why Wolverhampton Wanderers discussed a transfer fee for Rui Patricio.
.
The club want to avoid any possible legal claims that Leões could file for in the future and want the deal to go through on fine terms.
.
However, the star’s availability has alerted the likes of Arsenal and Atletico Madrid, with the latter being strongly linked with a move for the Portuguese forward.
.
The north London club was reportedly the player’s preferred destination, but now Los Rojiblancos appear to be leading the race to land him.
