The 28 year old Colombian has proven a massive success since moving to Portugal but is now being strongly linked with a move to the Premier League with the north London sides said to be keen on the powerful marksman.

Martinez had been said to be a target for both AC Milan and Valencia but the loan captures of Fernando Torres and Alvaro Negredo may negate the need for either side to continue their pursuit of Martinez.

Though Arsene Wenger has signed Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez he is still said to be looking to bring in Martinez in January, this move perhaps fueled by the continued injury absences of both Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud.

Tottenham’s need would appear to be greater with the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Harry Kane, Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado having scored a combined total of one Premier League goal this season.

Martinez netted 60 goals in his first two seasons at FC Porto and has grabbed nine in nine games in the current campaign.
