Porto striker Jackson Martinez has hinted he could be on the move this summer, with Tottenham reportedly interested in securing his services.

The Colombian was in sensational form last season, leading  the scoring in the Portuguese Liga with 26 goals and helping Porto claim the league trophy ahead of rivals Benfica in the process.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for the deadly striker in recent months, however his agent was quick to snuff out rumours of a switch to White Hart Lane to join former Porto boss Andre Villas-Boas.

However Martinez is likely to set the rumour mill in action once more after hinting that he could leave Porto this summer - and revealed some clubs had been in touch over a potential move.

"We have to talk a lot about my future," he said.

"Right now, there is nothing concrete but yes, there are some options to leave this summer. I will contact Porto and then wait and see what might happen."

Porto are likely to block any move from Martinez to leave having already sold both James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho - a former Spurs target - to Monaco for a combined fee believed to be in the region of £70 million.
