Wolves keen on winger loan deal

23rd January 2019, 01:46 by Michael Holland

Atletico Madrid winger Gelson Martins is a loan target for Wolves before the transfer window closes.

Wolves have adapted well to life back in the Premier League but they are not willing to rest on their laurels and are keen to strengthen further before the window closes.

According to reports in the Spanish press, Wolves are now targeting a move for Martins, who could be allowed to leave the La Liga club after slipping out of favour.

The 23-year-old has made just two starts and eight substitute outings in La Liga and the Champions League this season and a move away would benefit all parties.

Wolves are keen but they would face strong competition for the Portugal international as Premier League rivals Arsenal and French side Monaco are also interested.

Martins only joined Atleti in the summer but a sharp exit could be on the cards.
