Arsenal, Villa, Everton circling for Newcastle striker 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.
