Liverpool fans are looking elated here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Star claim that the Reds could well be making a £30 million January transfer window bid for Jackson Martinez.
The Porto forward has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and as our landlord notes, it is usually to Arsenal but it seems that Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool are the ones who are willing to splash the cash and land the Colombian international star.
According to our regulars, a move for Martinez cannot come soon enough, especially given the form of the under-fire Mario Balotelli.
This is not to mention the fact that goals are rather hard to come by for the Reds and their manager Rodgers who is coming under increasing pressure as the season goes on.
We think that Martinez would slot into Premier League life perfectly and it would certainly be a statement of intent from the Reds who are looking to push on and get into the next round of the Champions League, not to mention the top four of the Premier League to boot.
Liverpool fans. Of the strikers who may be available in January, is Jackson Martinez one of the best transfer targets you could pursue? Let us know your thoughts below.
