Liverpool Could Reportedly Sign Gelson Martins for Free Amid Sporting CP Exodus

Sporting Lisbon

Following the exit of Rui Patricio, as well as head coach Jorge Jesus, the foursome of Dost, Carvalho, Martins and Fernandes made a decision to go public on Monday, and filed notice with the Portuguese Securities Market Commission that they meant to terminate their contracts, invoking "just cause" after being attacked in their workplace.

Liverpool could sign Sporting Lisbon's Gelson Martins for free as the 23-year-old is making moves to cancel his contract with the Portuguese outfit after an attack on the side's training camp.

Last month 50 fans forced their way onto the training pitch and attacked players and staff with Bost picking up a head injury.

It's the latest in a series of weird developments at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Patricio wrote a 34-page document describing why he wants to leave, blaming volatile club president Bruno de Carvalho for turning Sporting's fans against the team.

Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins is keen to join Arsenal this summer, according to reports in Portugal.

The newspaper says Arsenal low-balled Sporting as Martins has been threatening to terminate his contract if they didn't negotiate his sale but the Portuguese club rejected our offer and insisted we pay his £53m release clause in full.

Martins, who was the most influential player for Sporting Lisbon, scored 13 goals and provided 13 assists in 52 appearances. The forward filed notice with the Portuguese Securities Market Commission on Monday of his intention to break his contract with Sporting.
