Liverpool have been linked with Portuguese international and Sporting CP star Gelson Martins since last summer and the latest reports going on in the media are intriguing.
Earlier this month, we covered a report (via Record) claiming that the winger, who has a release clause of 60 million euros ($73million) in his contract, pleases Klopp and the German boss could sign him by making a concrete offer.
More recently, Portuguese source Correio da Manhã have exclusively claimed that Gelson earns around 1 million euros annually with Sporting and Liverpool have offered him a deal that will make him earn 5 million euros a year.
The 22-year-old playmaker, who can be deployed at either flank, has been in fantastic form for the Primeira Liga side this season.
In 29 appearances in all competitions, so far, the Seleccao star has scored 9 goals and provided 8 assists. He is a pacy attacker, who has got the skills to be a hit in the Premier League.
Liverpool already have top quality stars like Mane and Salah, who occupy the wide positions for the Merseysiders under the management of Klopp.
The Reds must sign someone, who can be deployed in the central midfield to fill the gap left by Philippe Coutinho. It will be fair to say that in the absence of the Brazilian, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped up big time vs Man City last night. In your opinion, do Liverpool need Gelson Martins?
