The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been getting their hopes up over securing the signature of former Sporting Lisbon star and free agent, Gelson Martins. According to The Mirror, Spurs are interested in signing the 23-year-old this summer.
Martins in just one of a number of stars from Sporting who will be looking for a new club this summer after cancelling his contract his with the club following issues with the club’s owner and fans. The lucky club to benefit from not having to pay a fee for Martins could make a huge profit on the player in a few years time. At the age of just 23, the player has a £31.5 million Transfermarkt valuation and that will only go up.
The way this summer has gone so far, Tottenham have threatened to sign a lot of players but have yet to get anything across the line in terms of incomings. If Tottenham can have more luck with the signing of Martins then the fans will be over the moon. Gelson Martins has raw pace, skill to beat a man and end product in abundance and his 13 goals and 13 assists from the wing last season will make him a great addition to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
With that being said, here’s what the Spurs fans have been saying about Gelson Martins:
