Martinez on Arsenal radar

Arsenal have reportedly shown interest in signing up Porto star Jackson Martinez, according to his agent.

The talented Colombian international has earlier rebuffed claims that he was in talks with the Gunners over a summer switch.

However, his agent Peppino Tirri has revealed that the North London outfit have expressed their desire to secure the 27-year-old's signature in recent weeks.

"In Italy we have had very little contact, but for sure there have not been any offers made by Roma." He said. "There are, instead, opportunities abroad, Arsenal and Valencia in particular are very interested in Jackson Martinez."

Martinez notched up 29 goals in all competitions for Porto last season.
