Martinez has been a massive success since moving to Primeira Liga side FC Porto 18 months ago, scoring 43 goals in 53 appearances in all competitions and Jose Mourinho may well feel that the powerful forward is the ideal man to lead his Blues attack.
Mourinho has watched on as his current quartet of strikers, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto’o, Andre Schurrle and Fernando Torres have all failed to impress, managing just four Premier League goals between them this season.
The addition of a strong prolific forward such as Martinez spearheading the Chelsea attack could be just what is required to get the West London side pushing for a Premier League title they may well otherwise struggle to secure with their current striking options.
