Arsenal in advanced talks with Gelson Martins AND Bernd Leno

Arsenal are in advanced talks with Gelson Martins and Bernd Leno.

The Gunners are also expected to announce the signing of Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos on July 1.

The north London club have already signed Juventus free agent Stephan Lichtsteiner, and according to Sky Sports, new manager Unai Emery wants both Martins and Leno for next season.

Martins could be available on a free transfer as he is one of four Sporting Lisbon players who have asked for their contracts to be terminated. The winger will feature for Portugal at the World Cup.

26-year-old goalkeeper Leno has been told by Bayer Leverkusen that he can leave. The German is viewed as the ideal replacement for the ageing Petr Cech.
