Competition: Premier League
Market: Jackson Martinez to join Chelsea
Odds: 5/1 @ Betfair
Atletico Madrid striker Jackson Martinez has endured a debut season to forget at the Vicente Calderon and could well be on his way out of the club this month with plenty of interest in his services.
Chelsea are one of many sides reportedly keen on his signature, having shown an interest prior to last summer’s move to Atleti. The Colombian international, 29, made a name for himself after scoring more than 90 goals in over 130 games for FC Porto, and earned himself a move to the Spanish La Liga.
However, things haven’t gone to plan under Diego Simeone, scoring just two goals all season, and Martinez could well make the move to the Premier League as a part exchange if rumours are to be believed. Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been linked with a move back to Atleti, and a player-swap would surely be the ideal solution for everyone involved.
Martinez was hot property in Europe prior to his failed spell in Spain, but he’s still a coveted striker this month. Betfair are giving odds of 5/1 for the 29-year-old make the move to Chelsea in the January transfer window.
