Borussia Dortmund appear to be leading the race to sign Jackson Martinez, with German sources picked up by talkSPORT even suggesting that the Bundesliga title hopefuls are close to agreeing a deal with Porto for the prolific Colombian marksman.

27-year-Martinez, who joined the reigning Primeira Liga champions from Mexican outfit Chiapas in July 2012, has been in sensational form since arriving in Portugal and boasts a formidable goalscoring record.

Such impressive form has led to increasingly intense speculation regarding Martinez's immediate future, with Premier League title hopefuls Chelsea linked to his signature along with La Liga giants Real Madrid.

It was reported by Spanish newspaper Marca earlier this week that Carlo Ancelotti's men were intent on stepping up their efforts to sign the striker, but they could have made their move too late with German sources picked up by talkSPORT suggesting that Dortmund have emerged as frontrunners for his signature and could even be close to agreeing a deal for Martinez after holding talks with his current employers.
