Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted at a summer move for Porto star Jackson Martinez.
Martinez has been tipped to move to the Premier League in the last two transfer windows but a deal had yet to materialise.
However, he has confirmed that he wants a summer move and that statement opened the door to a possible deal.
And Wenger fuelled talk by admitting his love for the striker.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror website, Wenger said: ‘Top physical strengths.
‘Hugely efficient, he is the kind of player who can make room for himself in the box.
‘He could play in the Premier League because he has the body to make the difference. He uses it in a very intelligent way. Very short back lift and he’s a very good finisher.
‘He’s on the list of many clubs, you know that. He will be the next big transfer who will give a big smile to Pinto da Costa [Porto’s owner].’
