The Gunners have been busy since the start of the current transfer market and they are reportedly set to complete their third summer sign signing before the end of the week.
It is believed that the Gunners are in the pursuit of Sporting Gijon winger Gelson Martins as the hope to better their showings at both flanks during the upcoming season.
According to Portugal based media outlet Radiosei, the North London club are willing to improve their dealings with the Primera club so as to complete their move for the young winger who is presently worth European Champions in Russia.
However, the player is also being considered as a top target for Lazio who are desperately in the search for a lively winger ahead of the upcoming season.
Though TuttoCalcioWeb revealed that the Serie A giants are set to explore the relationship they have with the player’s agent to lure him to the club, Arsenal more than willing to meet Sporting’s asking price for the player’s signature.
Gelson Martins has a €60m (£52.7m) release clause in his contract with the club but that isn’t enough to prevent the Gunners from moving swiftly to beat Lazio to his service.
Martins was impressive at the wings during the previous campaign as he was able to score in 13 occasions while he also made 13 assists to help his Portuguese club to a strong finish.
