Roberto Martinez: Has transfer targets in mind

The Latics have turned to Scandinavia in the past, but have enjoyed little joy in their search for new recruits.

Martinez hopes that will situation will change in 2013, as he believes there are hidden gems to be unearthed in that part of the world.

He is reluctant to speculate on the identity of the targets he has in mind, but reports suggest that Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius, Nordsjaelland defender Jores Okore and Aalborg forward Nicklas Helenius are all on his wish list.

"I don't want to name names of specific players out of respect for the respective clubs involved.

"I am crazy about the Danish mentality towards attacking football, so I hope that we can be luckier in our hunt in the future."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
