Seemingly during every transfer window, Jackson Martinez gets linked with a whole host of clubs in the Premier League, only to remain at Porto where he has flourished since joining back in 2012.
The Colombian international’s scoring record in the Portuguese Primeira Liga currently stands at an incredible 67 strikes in 89 games, serving to suggest that he’d find goalscoring no problem at all in the Premier League.
While sceptics claim that the likes of Tottenham took a gamble too many in bringing the once prolific Helder Postiga to North London where he couldn’t recreate his form, the feeling is that Martinez is a different animal altogether and even boasts 10 strikes in 35 appearances for the national team.
The striker reportedly has permission to make a transfer away from Estadio Dragao this summer and Arsenal will want to be at the front of the queue to cash in on his last few years of his prime with Martinez currently aged 28.
