Gunners make progress in superb striker deal.
Arsenal are ready to make a bid of £24.5m to sign Porto striker Jackson Martinez, which the Portuguese club are likely to accept, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Colombian international has been highly prolific for Porto in the last few seasons, and Arsenal now look to be his main admirers going into the summer transfer window.
With Olivier Giroud making headlines for all the wrong reasons in last week’s Champions League defeat to AS Monaco, it looks as though Arsene Wenger is prioritising the addition of a new forward.
Martinez looks a good buy at that price, having scored 86 goals in 122 games in just three seasons.
