Spurs to make changes upfront this January.
Tottenham Hotspur may be leading the chase to sign Porto striker Jackson Martinez this January as they eye a replacement for Roberto Soldado, according to Fichajes.net.
Spurs spent big to sign Soldado from Valencia last summer, but the Spanish international has proven a huge disappointment in the Premier League, despite enjoying a great record in front of goal in La Liga.
Mauricio Pochettino now appears to have run out of patience with the misfiring forward, and will look to Porto’s Martinez as the answer to his side’s problems in attack.
After losing again this weekend at home to Stoke City, it seems clear that Tottenham need signings this January to boost their slim hopes of making the top four this season, and the Colombian international would appear to be one of Pochettino’s top priority targets for this winter.
The 28-year-old has been superb since moving to the Portuguese top flight in 2012, scoring 72 goals in 106 games for Porto, whilst also impressing for the Colombian national team.
Arsenal are also known to be tracking the player, but Spurs may be ready to step up their interest in bringing him to White Hart Lane this season ahead of the competition.
