Porto striker Jackson Martinez is a self-confessed Gooner. The Colombian's representatives have revealed talks are planned with Manchester United and Arsenal in the coming days.

United, however, may face a fight on their hands to convince Martinez to snub the advances of Arsenal, with the striker having previously declared his desire to join the Gunners.

Martinez said: "I cheered for Arsenal when I was a kid - I love their style of play.

"It's flowing and open with a lot of first touch passes. It would be suitable for a player like me.

"If I get a chance to play for a high level club like Arsenal I wouldn't hesitate to accept it."
