Arsenal given boost in race to sign Porto target

Last updated : 11 June 2015 By DSG

Arsenal have been tipped to sign Jackson Martinez since last summer with the striker proving he is one of the best in Europe with stats that show the 28-year-old can consistently find the back f the net

The player has scored an incredible 29+ goals in each of his three seasons at Porto and its that strike rate which has attracted the strong interest from Arsenal as well as AC Milan.

AC Milan are understood to be in pole position to sign Martinez with the Colombian close to leaving Porto if his £25m buy-out clause is met

Luiz Henrique Pompeo claims that the race to sign is not yet done and that another club is waiting in the wings to give hope to Arsenal.

"Milan we really like, it is a top club, but on the scales we also have an offer from another top club," Pompeo told calciomercato.

"We have to meet again with (Milan CEO, Adriano) Galliani between tomorrow and the day after, there are still things to be placed, the agreement has not yet been completed.

"How is the situation between Milan and Porto? I do not know, I do not take part in the negotiations between the clubs."
