Arsenal transfer news: Porto and Colombia Jackson Martinez 'unsure of future'
Striker tells Colombian radio he 'does not know what will happen'
Wednesday 09 July 2014
Jackson Martinez has admitted he does not know where he will be playing his football next season.
The Porto and Colombia striker has been linked with a move to Arsenal but does not know if he will be arriving at the Emirates.
Martinez has a stunning record since he made the move from Chiapas to Porto, scoring 60 goals in 91 matches since arriving in Portugal.
The 27-year-old scored twice for Colombia at the World Cup, but played less than might have been expected after Radamel Falcao was ruled out, with Jose Pekerman preferring Teofilo Gutierrez as his lone striker.
With Arsenal chasing a blockbuster move for Alexis Sanchez and Martinez having a restrictive £35m buy-out clause, the striker admitted his future is up in the air.
"Right now, I don't know what will happen," he told Colombian radio station La FM.
"I have two more years on my contract with FC Porto.
"There is interest from some clubs, something that is perfectly normal when a player is performing well, but I always have to take into account the fact I am under contract and I have to respect it.
"Only time will tell what will happen."
