Arsenal fans are looking up with excitement here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think they have a clear path to land Jackson Martinez.
The Porto forward has been linked with a move to north London more times than our landlord has poured pints, but now it seems that Arsene Wenger is finally serious about landing the player and we think that with Porto looking to cash in, the north London side simply have to get a march on the transfer before getting blown out of the water by a club who are willing to spend more money.
After much criticism over Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck’s performances this term, we think Martinez is the ideal man to take Arsenal to the next level.
Arsenal fans. Do you really think you are clear to land one of the best forwards in Europe right now? Is Martinez better than Olivier Giroud? Let us know your thoughts below.
