FC Porto striker Jackson Martinez has outlined his ambition to play in the Premier League, with Chelsea or Arsenal as his preferred destinations. The Colombia international has netted a return of 38 goals in 44 appearances since making the switch to the Estadio do Dragao from Mexican side Chiapas in 2012.

"Where would I like to play?" he said in La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"When I was a child I rooted for Chelsea and Arsenal.

"I think the best championships are La Liga, the Premier League and Bundesliga, which has grown much in recent years.

"But I also really like Serie A and have many friends in Italy."

Should a club make an approach for Martinez there will be a substantial release fee to pay with the striker under contract until the June 2016.

"My £34million buy-out clause seems a huge amount," he went on to add.

"In one year my value has exploded. I did not expect to do so well."
