Jackson Martinez says he would be open to a move to the Premier League in the summer.

The Porto striker was heavily linked with a January switch to Emirates Stadium as Arsene Wenger sought to bolster his attacking options at the north London club.

I like the English, Italian, Spanish and German leagues. I have no preference

Jackson Martinez

The Colombia international, who joined Porto from Chiapas in 2012, has been in sparkling form this season, scoring 15 goals in 21 games in all competitions.

And the 25-year-old Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur target is eyeing a potential move to the English top-flight, Serie A or La Liga at the end of the season.

“Maybe there will be this possibility [of a move],” Martinez said on TMW.

“I am happy at Porto, but it would be nice to one day play in another big club.

“I like the English, Italian, Spanish and German leagues. I have no preference.”

Martinez has scored 49 goals in 64 appearances for Porto in all competitions, winning Primeira Liga and Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira twice.
