Juventus to target Jackson Martinez if they sell Pogba

Published Add your comment

The sale of Paul Pogba could give Juventus the funds required to beat Arsenal, Chelsea and Monaco to the €40m capture of Porto star Jackson Martinez.

According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, Juventus will demand up to €60m for Pogba this summer, with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain all chasing his signature.

Although Juve don't want to lose the French international, the report claims they will use the funds to land Chelsea and Arsenal transfer target Jackson Martinez.

The Colombian international has been tracked by a number of top European clubs, including PSG, Monaco, Atletico Madrid and Napoli.

The latest reports from Italy claim Juventus have turned their attention to Martinez, with current first-team strikers Fabio Quagliarella and Mirko Vucinic set to depart Turin this summer.

But their ability to match the Porto forward's release clause of €40m relies upon selling their top young asset, France international midfielder Paul Pogba.

They've repeatedly insisted the club is not interested in selling Pogba, although that has not dampened speculation.

Martinez meanwhile, is set to spearhead the Colombian attack at the World Cup with Radamel Falcao injured. The striker has been a long-term target for Arsenal and Chelsea, two Premier Leagues clubs that are expected to add to their forward options in this upcoming summer window.
