We have long been linked with a move for Porto striker Jackson Martinez, and the Colombian has shown once again why he is so highly sought after.
The 28-year-old showed he is more than just a goalscorer during his side’s 3-0 win over Sporting Lisbon, putting it on a plate for on-loan Barcelona star Cristian Tello with a superb assist.
Martinez chested it down, before skillfully flicking it over his head without even looking. The ball rolled perfectly into the path of the onrushing Tello, who slotted it away with what would prove to be the first goal of his hat-trick.

It’s easy to see why Arsene Wenger is a fan of the talented target-man, and why so many fans want us to splash the cash on him this summer.
He would ease our reliance on Olivier Giroud, and would unquestionably add quality to an already star studded squad.
