Arsenal target Jackson Martinez sets transfer deadline

Arsenal will have to wait for a few days in order to find out if long term target, Jackson Martinez will sign for them or not. The Colombian international striker is a wanted man this summer following a string of impressive displays for Portuguese giants FC Porto last season.

Arsene Wenger is a big fan of the striker who is keen on testing his skills elsewhere before the start of next season and has already made a bid for him that has reportedly been accepted by the player’s current employers. However, Italian Serie A side AC Milan are also keen on signing the striker with reports claiming that Martinez prefers a move to the San Siro over a move to The Emirates.

Regardless, the player has stated that he will be announcing his next destination in a few days.

“I’m as close to Milan as I am to other clubs,” he said.

“I will decide my future in the next few days.”
