Arsenal, Villa, Everton circling for Newcastle striker Martins

Newcastle United are facing cashing in on striker Obafemi Martins.

Newcastle United are facing cashing in on striker Obafemi Martins.

The Daily Star Sunday says Martins – who was signed from Inter Milan by former Toon boss Glenn Roeder three years ago – is said to be eyeing a return to Italy.

Fiorentina fancy the Nigerian, 24, but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer.

A move to the Emirates would depend on whether or not Emmanuel Adebayor stays with the Gunners this summer.

Aston Villa and Everton are also understood to be weighing up moves – but the £10m asking price could be a sticking point, with Martins expected to ask for a bumper salary as well.
