Liverpool fans on social media expressed their desire for the club to sign Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins.

The winger, who has exceptional pace, is one of many players at the Portuguese giants who is trying to have his current contract terminated so he can leave on a free.

The Daily Mirror, who reported on the player’s quest to end his Sporting deal, that the one-time Reds target has consistently been linked with big-money moves to the Premier League and his ongoing situation in Portugal will have teams in England on red alert.

While the newspaper claimed that there would be several teams keeping an eye on the situation, supporters of Jurgen Klopp’s side wanted to make sure their team was paying particular attention.

One fan tweeted that the club should snap Martins up on a free alongside Sporting teammate Bruno Fernandes and then spend money going after a goalkeeper.

Another supporter took to Twitter to claim that pursuing Martins was a better option to take then going after Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

According to Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones, via his Twitter account, the Reds have held talks with the tricky winger’s representatives as they look into a possible deal for his services.

Martin, who is clearly the fans’ choice based on their tweets, scored 13 goals in 52 games during his 2017/18 campaign.
