Liverpool have reportedly set their sights on FC Porto forward Jackson Martinez and are ready to fork out £15m to land the in-form Colombian international according to CalcioMercato.

The Anfield side will go up against Barcelona in their pursuit of the powerful 26 year old striker who has been a phenomenal success since his £9m summer move to Portugal from Jaguares.

Brendan Rodgers is in urgent need of attacking reinforcements having seen his options up front limited to just Luis Suarez after Fabio Borini broke his foot.

The Uruguayan has been an astounding success since his move from Ajax and has netted ten goals already this season but could well do with support.

A lot has been expected of Jackson Martinez as he saw striker Hulk leave FC Porto shortly after his arrival. The lethal finisher has not disappointed, exceeding all expectations with a blistering start scoring nine goals in nine matches and helping his side to the top of the Primeira Liga.
