Arsenal’s delve in the upcoming transfer window seems to be taking a rather speedy fashion as there are reports that the Gunners are set to land Porto star Jackson Martinez.
Arsenal have moved quickly ahead of the summer transfer window with fresh reports according to the Mirror that the Gunners have agreed a deal in principle to sign the South American ace.
The 28-year-old has scored 32 goals for Porto this season but has been linked with a move away – with Manchester United and Tottenham keen.
However, the Jornal di Noticias newspaper suggests the Colombian is heading for Arsenal, with a ‘principle agreement’ reached for him to sign.
The paper adds that nothing has been sorted out with Porto, but even the club’s fans are resigned to losing the player, having given him a send off at their last game of the season.
Wenger has revealed that he is on the lookout for world class stars this summer and Martinez with 32 goals this season is nothing short of that.
Arsenal fans will be pleased to have the Porto man within their ranks next season to add more fire power to their attack as they prepare for a major title charge next season.
