Arsenal’s priority this transfer window is to sign a top quality striker so as to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
The main high profile striker in the lime light is Porto star Jackson Martinez who has scored for fun in the Primeira Liga and is one of the best forwards around.
Three clubs have been strongly linked with a move for Colombian international i.e. Arsenal, AC Milan and Valencia.
Arsenal and Valencia offer Champions League football and the only way Milan can win the race is by offering Martinez a hefty contract.
As published yesterday, reports suggested that AC Milan have actually agreed deal to sign Martinez as they were ready to pay his release clause.
However, the latest reports in Spanish media suggest that Arsenal are the ones close to reaching agreement for Martinez and Porto will receive a large sum to reinforce their squad in the summer.
This transfer saga is taking a new turn everyday. Who will eventually sign Martinez?
