have reportedly made an offer to sign Atletico Madrid’s Gelson Martins this month.

is keen to reinforce his squad this month and has made enquiries over several players but, due to financial restrictions, the Spaniard has been limited to sealing deals.

Portuguese newspaper O Jogo (via Metro) now claim the have tabled an offer for Martins, who could leave this month.

With reports linking Atletico Madrid with a move for Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata, Martins could be offloaded to make room.

The 23-year-old arrived at Atletico last summer but has struggled to cement a regular starting place under Simeone, making just 12 appearances in all competitions this season.

Martins, who was previously linked with a move to Liverpool, would be a good addition to the squad as he is a versatile forward who can play on either flank as well as through the middle.

have just over a week to complete any signings and although Martins would add depth to Emery’s attacking options, they may well need to bring in some defensive cover after several injuries in this area this season.
