Arsenal are weighing up a January bid for FC Porto striker Jackson Martinez, according to Portuguese publication O Jogo.
The Colombia international is one of the most in-form frontmen in all of Europe at the moment, having netted 37 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, since arriving at Estádio do Dragão last summer.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen to strengthen his front line, to provide support for Olivier Giroud, and sees Martinez as a viable option to bring to the Emirates Stadium in the New Year.
With Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo Arsenal's only alternative striking options at present, an injury to Giroud could spell disaster for the early Premier League pacesetters in 2013/14.
So, the north London club are keen to recruit the 27-year-old when the transfer window reopens, and are showing no signs of tightening their belts following the club-record £42.5million capture of Mesut Ozil on summer deadline day.
