Liverpool are weighing up a move for Gelson Martins from Sporting Lisbon in January, according to reports in Portugal.

According to Correio da Manha, a Portuguese newspaper, the Reds have agreed to personal terms with the player and have offered him a salary of approximately £80k a week, about five times more than the player is now making.

But it is said the Reds are prepared to pay more than five times what he now earns in the Primeira Liga.

The Merseysiders are on the hunt for a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in a £142m deal earlier this month, and have been linked with the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Thomas Lemar.

Martins now has a buy-out clause of £53m but the Daily Mirror claims that Sporting are ready to exercise their option to pay the player £1.3m in order to increase his buy-out to £89m.

Ecuador seeks mediator to resolve Julian Assange impasse
Ecuador gave Assange asylum after he sought refuge in the embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden for investigation of sex-related claims.

If Liverpool aren't prepared to pay £53m it's highly unlikely they'll pay anywhere near £89m so despite reportedly agreeing personal terms with the player, it looks like a deal is still a long way off.

And the Portuguese press are saying Martins is now on Klopp's wishlist and Liverpool are willing to pay him around £84,000-a-week wages.

In an effort to fend off Liverpool's interest, Sporting are preparing to open talks with Martins over a new contract so they can bump up his release clause.

Martins has 29 goals in all competitions this season and was linked with the Reds last summer.
