Arsenal close in on sensational forward ahead of summer move

Jackson MartinezMetro have stunned Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claimed that Jackson Martinez could well be on his way to the club.

The Gunners are desperate for another forward and no matter how long it has taken Olivier Giroud to score 50 goals in comparison to Thierry Henry, he is still not good enough and as one of our punters notes over a beer, we think that to launch a serious title challenge next season, they will need a top forward.

We think that Martinez is that man, and given he is looking to leave Porto, and has managed to net 32 goals this season, it could be the ideal move for Wenger and the Gunners to make. Not that we actually expect them to.

Arsenal fans. Do you think that there is any chance of the forward rocking up at the Emirates next season? Let us know your thoughts below.
