Jackson Martinez snubs Arsenal for Italian giants

In a piece of news that is sure to disappoint Arsenal fans, Colombia international, Jackson Martinez is set to rebuff the London club’s attempts to sign him in a bid to put pen to paper on a long-term deal with Italian Serie A strugglers, AC Milan.

The Porto striker had been linked with a move to the Emirates for the past few months and it was believed that Arsene Wenger had confirmed the striker to make a move to the English outfit. However, things have turned dramatically over the past couple of days with the Colombian ace now closer to signing a deal with AC Milan who despite not being able to secure a place in Europe last season, have lured him to the San Siro.

The news was also confirmed by the Porto president. “Jackson Martinez has chosen Milan”, Jorge Nuno Pinto Da Costa told Portuguese TV channelPorto Canal.
