Arsenal do already have two players involved in the Copa America tournament being held in Chile this summer, with our brilliant forward Alexis Sanchez representing the home nation and our Keeper David Ospina likely to be the number one for Colombia.
And we could soon have another reason to watch Ospina’s country’s games, as the bookies seem to think that we are about to complete the transfer of his team mate Jackson Martinez from Porto. JUst yesterday it was being reported by Metro that Arsene Wenger had placed a bid of around £22 million with his current club Porto and that the Gunners were fairly confident that this would be enough for us to get our man.
The fact that the 30 goal a season centre forward has made no secret of his wish to leave and play for a bigger club will definitely not harm our chances. All this seems to have convinced the bookies, or one of them at least as Betfair cut their odds on Jackson joining Arsenal this summer down to odds on of 1/2.
They also have odds for the prolific front man to join clubs like Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Milan and even our local rivals Tottenham, but they have the Gunners as clear favourites. Would he be the right striker signing for us Gooners?
