Video: Big-money Tottenham target Jackson Martinez nets in Porto win

FC Porto Stadium

The Colombian striker scored his side’s second in a 3-1 victory over lowly Penafiel yesterday.

With Harry Kane the only Tottenham striker currently performing consistently well for the club, The Express claimed on Friday that the North London outfit were preparing a big-money move for Porto star Jackson Martinez.

The Colombia international has been in fine form for the Estadio do Dragao outfit this term, and added to his domestic goal haul in a 3-1 victory over Penafiel yesterday.

In atrocious weather conditions in Portugal, Martinez netted Porto’s second goal as can be seen below.

The close-range strike takes the South American hitman to 14 goals in 17 Primeira Liga games in 2014-15, with Porto closing the gap on league leaders Benfica with the victory yesterday.

Martinez has an exemplary scoring record since moving to Europe from Chiapas in 2012, scoring 26 and 20 goals respectively in his first two full campaigns in Portugal.

The 28-year-old is the Portuguese top flight’s leading goalscorer this season, with Martinez five strikes ahead of his closest rival.
