Video Evidence: Probable signing Obafemi Martins
He’s got pace, strength and lethal finishing – qualities that are enough to fill Emmanuel Adebayor’s void.
Martins was once linked with an Arsenal move during the summer of 2007 when Henry departed, and he may well be a good consideration if Arsene Wenger intends to bolster his attack.
The 24-year-old who is younger and a much proven striker than Marouane Chamakh could also come cheaper than he would have two years ago. With the relegated Newcastle desperate to offload well-paid employees, a reported £7 million price tag is what’s placed on this Nigerian talent who was once a prodigy at Inter Milan.
