This source suggests a queue is forming for this somersaulting goal scorer!
Obafemi Martins is looking for a way out of Newcastle in January.
The Nigerian striker is worried by the uncertainty surrounding the club and wants to move when the window re-opens in a month’s time.
The news will alert Tottenham and Arsenal, who would be able to sign Martins for £13million because of a get-out clause in his contract. (The People)
I am not sure if Martins is the type of player Redknapp is after, but this source seems to suggest that both north London rivals are very keen on snaping up the Nigerian international but I am not so sure. The 24 year old former Inter Milan man can be explosive on his day but his form can be patchy and I don’t see him as being any better than the likes of Darren Bent or Roman Pavlyuchenko and certainly not a patch on what already is at Arsene’s disposal at Arsenal. I think he is more likely to end up leaving the Premier League entirely or sticking it out at Newcastle who under Joe Kinnear should avoid the drop. Do fans of either side believe a move for Martins makes any sense?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
