Ben Jefferson from The Express reports to punters in the Football Transfer Tavern that Inter Milan could step up their efforts to sign Arsenal and Chelsea target Jackson Martinez in the summer.
The big-spending Serie A outfit are trying to revive their squad after a disappointing season at the San Siro and that could see impressive goalkeeper Samir Handanovic being sold to open up extra funds for the Colombian hotshot.
According to today’s reports, the Slovenian international stopper has emerged on the radar of Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini as he looks to increase competition on current number one Joe Hart at the Etihad Stadium.
This could see Inter being prepared to let the 29-year-old leave with the club thought to be looking for around £25 million in order to open up a move for the talented striker.
Martinez has been a name of the lips of our punters as a player they want to see joining the Premier League in the post-season but this news possibly indicates that the 27-year-old could have other options at his disposal.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is known to be a keen admirer of the FC Porto man as he looks to add extra firepower to his attack and we had hoped that a move to Stamford Bridge would suit all parties.
If Martinez is to exit Porto this summer, which club represents his most likely transfer destination? Let us know your thoughts below.
