Video: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hints at move for Porto’s Jackson Martinez
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that he is interested in signing Porto striker Jackson Martinez.
The Gunners boss was asked about the Colombia international during a recent interview and was full of praise for the 28-year-old.
Wenger said that Martinez would be a transfer target for many clubs and tipped him to be a success in the Premier League.
He told beIN Sports: “[He has] top physical strength, hugely efficient.
“He’s the kind of player who can make room for himself in the box.
“He could play in the Premier League, Jackson Martinez, because he has the body to make the difference.
“He uses in a very intelligent way his body, very short backlift and is a very good finisher.
“He’s on the list of many clubs, you know that.
“And he will be the next big transfer who will give a big smile to Pinto Da Costa.”
Martinez has recently indicated that he plans to leave Porto at the end of the current campaign.
