Brendan Rodgers could go for another striker after signing Mario Balotelli who has had a rough start at the Anfield since his £16million move to Liverpool from AC Milan in the summer.

According to the Daily Express, long-time Arsenal target Jackson Martinez is prepared to leave Porto for Premiership football. The 28-year-old has scored 72 goals in 106 caps for the Portuguese title contenders who already got Ricardo Quaresma and Adrian Lopez from Atletico Madrid in the forward line.

When I buy the new FIFA every year, the first thing I always do is transfer myself from Porto to Arsenal

Fabio Borini, Rickie Lambert and the unlucky Balotelli haven't satisfied the gaffer who is now again seeking for a Luis Suarez replacement. The Colombian might just be the one for Gerrard & co.

Numerous other clubs hope to sign him in January, such as Valencia and AC Milan. Of course, Jackson would definitely prefer a move to England where he could play for one of world's biggest clubs.

"When I buy the new FIFA every year, the first thing I always do is transfer myself from Porto to Arsenal," he said in January and that just proves the points. Whether he will be moving to Liverpool or the Emirates, the Colombian has the greatest intension of making a move to Premiership.
