Agent of reported Spurs target Jackson Martinez says he could leave Porto this summer

An alleged Tottenham Hotspur striker target could be on the move this summer.

FC Porto striker Jackson Martinez could leave Portugal this summer according to an interview his agent Henrique Pompeo gave to radio station Radio CRC which was later published by newspaper A Bola.

The Daily Star is among those to have linked the Colombian international with Tottenham Hotspur – a club in desperate need of a world-class forward and a side where Jackson could become a superstar.

And now the player’s agent has been quoted as saying, “Jackson is well in Porto so in January he will not change team.

“But at the end of the season there is the possibility of changing leagues.”

Pompeo recently revealed – in comments published by ESPN – that Jackson favoured a move to Italy. But while he said that Serie A would be the prolific forward’s first choice, that does not mean the Premier League should be completely discounted.

The alleged Tottenham target has scored 23 goals in 27 matches this season and he has netted a total of 140 goals in 215 club appearances to date.

That kind of form means he would be a wonderful asset at White Hart Lane, with Tottenham needing to add support to the blossoming Harry Kane.

So could Mauricio Pochettino still get the star?

The fact his agent has spoken about a possible summer departure means there would be no harm in Daniel Levy testing the water for the 28-year-old.

After all, the fact that he has a contract until the summer of 2017 means Porto could still play hardball, allowing a big offer from elsewhere to secure a player who could be an outstanding addition to the English top flight.
