Jackson Martinez: No offers for the Porto striker

Jackson Martinez: No offers for the Porto striker

Real Madrid have recently been linked with a move for Martinez, with reports claiming the Spanish club had made an enquiry about the striker.

Premier League quartet Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are also reported to be admirers of the Colombia international.

Barcelona, meanwhile, are reported to be weighing up an offer for Mangala, with the centre-half another Porto player to have been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past.

However, Pinto da Costa has dismissed reports that Porto have fielded any approaches for the influential duo.

"Every day there are stories that one club or another wants Mangala but Porto have not received a single offer for him," the Porto supremo told EFE.

"It is the same with Jackson. His name has been in every paper but nobody has contacted us about him."

Otamendi has attracted speculation linking him with the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, but again Pinto da Costa claims that none of the rumours are true.

He added: "Otamendi is the other name that people always talk about and no offers have been received for him either."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
