Colombia start puts Arsenal on alert

Porto striker Jackson Martinez has claimed he would love to move to the Emirates Stadium after revealing he supported Arsenal as a boy, according to the Daily Express.

The striker is currently on World Cup duty with Colombia as they gear up to face hosts Brazil, but Arsene Wenger is said to be weighing up a move after missing out on Carlos Vela.

And Wenger is said to be willing to meet the whopping £35m buy out clause for the striker who has a phenomenal record at current club Porto – 60 goals from 91 games.

Arsenal are desperate to sign another striker after Olivier Giroud took the goal scoring burden alone for the majority of the season and looked to be tiring towards the end of the campaign.

Nicklas Bendtner has left the club after his contract expired and while Joel Campbell is impressing at the World Cup too, Martinez fits the bill.

With speculation now mounting, the striker admitted he would find a move to the Emirates hard to turn down, but for now will focus on firing Colombia to success.

He said: “My agent is taking care of my future, right now I'm at the World Cup and only after the World Cup I'll evaluate proposals.

“As a child I cheered for Arsenal, they play a game that suits me. If I had the occasion to play there, I would say yes.”
