AS Monaco are keen to challenge Chelsea for the signing of Porto striker Jackson Martinez, according to talkSPORT.

The Ligue 1 outfit, who have also been linked to Arsenal winger Theo Walcott in this morning's newspapers, are keen to bolster their squad in January to keep up the pace with reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Monaco are one of the richest clubs in Europe and utilised their financial strength during the summer transfer window by signing several high-profile players including James Rodríguez, João Moutinho and Radamel Falcao.

But reports in France suggest they are now keen to add Martinez, who has scored 40 goals in 55 matches for Porto, to their ranks.

The 27-year-old has bagged seven league goals so far this season in Portugal, while he has netted a total of eight goals in 22 appearances for the Colombia national team.

With Colombia, Martinez plays alongside Falcao. Will the two strikers unite at the Stade Louis II?
