Liverpool fans are told in the Football Transfer Tavern by the Express that they are ready to launch their £30m move for Arsenal target Jackson Martinez.
Liverpool’s lack of goals has been well discussed in the Tavern by punters and it is clear that Brendan Rodgers is willing to do everything in his power to bring the goals back to Anfield.
And the Columbian, who impressed at the World Cup, certainly has an eye for goal as he has scored 72 goals in 106 appearances for Porto.
Martinez is supposedly hunting for a new challenge and it doesn’t get more tempting than having the opportunity to be at the forefront of Liverpool’s new striking force.
And Rodgers is still searching for Luis Suarez’s replacement, after their summer signing Mario Balotelli, has flopped after struggling to find his feet at his club.
The Reds will face tough competition from Arsenal in the January transfer window, but despite the Gunners having shown an interest in the forward for a long period of time, Liverpool are seen as favourites to tie him down.
