Considering Arsenal’s sensational performances in the season and their league position, it is evident they will attract many stars. At the moment, Arsenal are in dying need of a prolific goal scorer who can add accuracy when it comes to finishing. Let us face it, Giroud’s link up play in Arsenal’s system is something very appreciable but he still has to improve his conversion rate. On top of that any injury to The Frenchman can hamper Gunner’s chances of qualifying into the top 4.
Martinez is expected to leave the Portuguese outfit in the near future after stalling over a new contract and if the lifelong Gunners fan has his way, he will be moving to the Emirates Stadium. Chelsea appear to have cooled their pursuit of the Colombian international after Blues boss Jose Mourinho played down talk of a swoop for a new striker during the January transfer window.
Arsenal are known to be on the lookout for extra firepower to ease the burden on Olivier Giroud.
However, his asking price could be an stumbling block to any deal with Porto reportedly holding out for a fee in the region of £30million. Martinez said: “It’s flowing and open with a lot of first touch passes. It would be suitable for a player like me. If I get a chance to play for a high level club like Arsenal I wouldn’t hesitate to accept it.”
