Colombian keen on Anfield switch.
FC Porto forward Jackson Martinez is apparently keen on moving to Liverpool according to the Daily Express.
The 28 year old Colombian has been linked with a £30m move to Anfield with Brendan Rodgers frantically looking to strengthen his attack though this source believes any move to bring in the Primeira Liga star wouldn’t come to fruition until next summer.
Liverpool elected to sell Luis Suarez to Barcelona and then drafted in Rickie Lambert, Divock Origi and Mario Balotelli to boost their attack.
Young Belgian Origi was immediately loaned back to Lille whilst neither Lambert or Balotelli have scored a single Premier League goal and the failure of his new season has been exacerbated by Daniel Sturridge’s lenghty injury absence leaving Rodgers keen to acquire a fresh attacker in January.
Martinez has been a huge success since moving to Portugal, netting 72 goals in 106 appearances for FC Porto, but has recently re-ignited speculation over a likely exit by stating;
“My agent is in charge of the negotiations. I prefer to stay out of it.
“At the end of this season I hope to get some interesting proposals.”
