Mourinho has seen his current trio of striking options, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto’o, score just five Premier League goals between them and knows that a lack of a cutting edge up front could cost the West London club the title and is therefore desperate to sign a forward in January.
Martinez has been a big hit since moving to Portugal, scoring 49 goals in 64 appearances for FC Porto but the club’s inability to secure a spot in the last 16 of the Champions League may well lead the Primeira Liga side to look to cash in on the powerful forward to balance the books.
The 27 year old may well be interested in a move to Chelsea and the resultant pay rise that one would imagine would come with a switch to the West London club.
Chelsea may well have to fork out in excess of £25m to convince FC Porto to sell their top attacking weapon.
