Porto lead Liverpool in Colombian striker pursuit

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are keeping tabs on Colombian striker Jackson Martinez, according to reports in Portugal.

TalkSPORT believes that the 25-year-old, who currently plays for Mexican side Jaguares, will be free to leave this summer if any club meets his €5million valuation.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is keen to further strengthen his forward line at Anfield this June, and has identified Martinez as a potential recruit.

However, Liverpool are likely to face competition for the South American's signature from Porto.

A Bola claims that the Portuguese outfit are hot on the trail of Martinez, and having failed to sign him in January will renew their €8million interest in the summer.

But, speaking to Medio Tiempo last week, Martinez revealed that it was in fact Liverpool who are the club most likely to sign him, having held preliminary discussions with his representatives.

"There's a fairly good option to go to that club, but there's still nothing concrete," he said.
