I am putting two and two together here and I may have got five, but there are good reasons for Arsenal fans to believe that Arsene Wenger could now be on the verge of completing the transfer of one of the very best strikers in Europe.
Jackson Martinez may not be quite in the same league as Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, but there are not many forwards who come even close to his record of 92 goals for Porto in just three seasons. And those who might claim that the Portuguese league is easy should remember that he also netted eight goals from just 10 games in the Champions League last season.
The reason I think that Wenger could be about to seal the deal is because it now looks as though Arsenal are about to free up the squad room, with both Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell linked with moves away. The Daily Star claim that the Turkish club Galatasaray have agreed to sign the German in a deal that would not get us much of a transfer fee but would free up a lot of wages.
Joel Campbell, meanwhile, looks likely to stay in La Liga where he spent most of last season. He did not do nearly enough to convince Wenger to keep him at Arsenal and in another Daily Star report he welcomed recent transfer links to Real Sociedad.
So will it be two out and one in for Arsenal and the striker situation?
