Unai Emery targets highly rated Portuguese prospect named Gelson Martins.

Newly appointed Arsenal manager Unai Emery wants Sporting CP star Gelson Martins as part of their squad overhaul.

Martins finished with 13 goals and 13 assists in all competitions after a chaotic 2017-18 campaign for Sporting CP.

His performances are attracting interest from all over Europe and so the club president Bruno de Carvalho backed away from a plan to threaten to suspend 19 members of the first-team squad in April.

Reports also suggest that Sporting CP legendary goalkeeper Rui Patricio has terminated his contract with the Portuguese giants.

In this situation Sporting would hate to see a star player like Gelson Martins leave.

But, when a club Arsenal comes calling it might seem impossible to hold of best players.
