Along with the five strikers linked with Spurs at the start of the week, there have been some additional names cropping up and it’s a little surprising not to see a mention for Matej Vydra now that Watford are destined for at least one more year in the Championship.
Meanwhile, there has been an addition to the list in the shape of Colombian international Jackson Martinez who is currently with Andre Villas-Boas’ former club Porto. AVB has no direct knowledge of the player however, as he only joined up in 2012, but in 38 games for his new club the 26 year old has notched an incredible 33 goals.
Martinez’s record has steadily improved since he joined his first club Independiente Medellin in 2006 and with that kind of ratio it’s a little surprising that he currently holds just 18 international caps – even if he does have Radamel Falcao in front of him.
In fact, with 8 goals in those 18 appearances, Martinez’ ratio is better than Falcao’s at 16 from 43.
Not surprisingly, Spurs would have to smash their transfer record to sign the player with Porto valuing him around the £33m mark. A move this summer would surprise no-one but a trip to White Hart Lane might just be a shock.
