The Daily Star reveal devastating news to Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern after the agent of Porto’s striker Jackson Martinez has said his client won’t be leaving in January.
The 28-year-old has been continuously linked with the top sides in the Premier League but this latest message from his agent contradicts all the rumours.
All the clubs mentioned above are all looking to be more clinical in front of goal and it is rare that a player of Martinez’s calibre is available in January, meaning it would have been a no-brainer to pursue him.
However his agent Henrique Pompeu has looked to end all speculation, insisting that his client will stay put at the Estadio Dragao in January.
He said: “He is happy. He wants to be champion in Portugal and go far in the Champions League.
“There is plenty of talk, but he has an agreement with Porto and will respect it.
“He won’t leave in January.”
