Arsenal fans are looking up with massive smiles on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that AC Milan have pulled out of the race for Jackson Martinez.
The Porto forward is someone who is on the very top of Arsene Wenger’s summer wishlist and as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, we think he could be the forward to really make a difference to Arsenal’s title challenge next term – and if Petr Cech is also brought into the club, the spine Arsenal have been lacking for so long could finally be put into place.
Arsene Wenger is not exactly known for his love of spending money, but the release clause Martinez has of £25 million is hardly breaking the bank and would actually be a bargain if the forward did the business next season.
Arsenal fans. Is Martinez the forward for you? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
