As per the latest reports, Arsenal are hot favorites to sign FC Porto star striker Jackson Martinez after the club president have admitted they are powerless to stop the player if Martinez is willing to leave the club this summer.

Porto president Nuno Pinto da Costa have confirmed that they would be forced to leave their star if any club comes with an offer that meets his releease clause. The player has drawn interest from a host of clubs across Europe as he managed yet another impressive season for FC Porto.

The player has been heaily linked to Premier League this summer as he is set to find a new club. The 28-year old have drawn interest from Spurs, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea but Arsenal look the front-runners to land the striker.

Porto fans gave a grand send-off to the Jackson Martinez in the last Premiera League game he played. Martinez have finished the season with 21 Premiera League goals yet again becoming the top scorer in the league.


Porto president Nuno Pinto da Costa said, “He’s a player we want to keep, but we cannot stop someone paying the clause. Jackson went on vacation and so when he returns we will try to renew his deal just like last year.”

“He could play in the Premier League, Jackson Martinez, because he has the body to make the difference. He uses it in a very intelligent way, very short backlift and is a very good finisher,”said Wenger referring to Jackson Martinez in early March.

Reports suggest that Arsenal have already agreed personal terms with the player and will activate £24.7million release clause for his services.
