Porto striker set to snub Chelsea transfer interest

Published Add your comment

Chelsea striker target Jackson Martinez has rubbished claims from his agent that he'll consider a move away from Porto this summer, reports talkSPORT.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Estadio do Dragao ahead of the 2013/14 campaign, but he insists he remains happy in Portugal.

Earlier this week, Martinez's agent, Luis Manuel Manso, went on record to say that it would be a privilege for his client to play for Napoli - the Serie 'A' side are believed to be ready to rival Chelsea for the player's signature.

However, the Colombian international has refuted those comments, reiterating his commitment to Porto, the club he scored 26 goals for last season.

"Since I have arrived I have felt very well adapted and I am not just speaking about the sporting aspect but their treatment [of me]," Martinez told O Jogo.

"I'm happy and I know nothing about the rumours around my future. Now what I care about is improving my game and helping Porto to win titles."

Jose Mourinho is in the market for a striker this transfer window, as he looks to strengthen a forward line at Stamford Bridge, currently made up of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku.

Martinez would add another good option for Chelsea in the forthcoming season, as they look to juggle Premier League commitments with another tilt at the Champions League next year.
