Tottenham are reportedly considering a late move for Gelson Martins, with the 27-year-old Portuguese international keen on experiencing the Premier League.

According to Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas, Gelson Martins has emerged as a target for Tottenham this late in the window. Antonio Conte has been keen on signing a winger before the end of the summer transfer window and may have switched his attention towards the 27-year-old AS Monaco attacker after losing the race to land Daniel James.

Tottenham are hopeful of bringing in a new wide attacker before the transfer deadline. Antonio Conte may be keen to add another winger, despite signing Richarlison from Everton earlier in the summer. The Tottenham boss has wanted another option to shift some of their existing stars.

Those could be Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil, with the duo not under consideration at the moment. Gil could join Valencia if Tottenham find another wide attacker before the summer transfer window shuts, while Moura’s fate could also hinge on similar terms.

Spurs wanted Daniel James from Leeds United, but the Welsh international seems destined to join Fulham on a season-long loan deal. That move has led Tottenham to look for last-ditch alternatives, with AS Monaco’s Gelson Martins being considered for a transfer.

Martins could be allowed to leave Monaco if the right offer comes in, and the 27-year-old Portuguese international remains keen on a Premier League switch. The next few hours would determine if the interest from Tottenham is concrete, which could then accelerate the move.

Gelson Martins has had an unstable time in football since leaving Sporting CP in 2018 following a significant fiasco involving many players. He has since played for Atletico Madrid and subsequently joined AS Monaco in a £27 million deal.

Tottenham’s reported interest does not signify whether they are taking the 27-year-old Portuguese international on loan or permanently, although they might have to shell out a significant sum in the latter’s case.

Tottenham hope to find an agreement in the coming hours as there is hardly any time left in the summer transfer window. The move for Gelson Martins makes sense from Tottenham’s perspective, as the 27-year-old Portuguese international can operate on either wing.
