Arsenal confident of signing Jackson Martinez from Porto for £21.9m

The Gunners are desperate in their search of an able strike partner for Olivier Giroud and according to reports, have launched an audacious bid to acquire the services of Colombian hitman, Jackson Martinez, currently under contract at Portuguese outfit, FC Porto.

Arsene Wenger is a huge admirer of Martinez and is confident that the recent bid of 21.9 million pounds would be enough to convince Porto into letting go of their most prized asset as the Gunners look to add more offensive muscle to their squad ahead of the 2015/16 campaign.
