Spurs receive major boost in striker chase.
Tottenham Hotspur look the favourites to sign prolific Porto striker Jackson Martinez in the January transfer window, according to Fichajes.net.
The north London club are said to be stepping up their efforts to bring the talented Colombian international to White Hart Lane this season, with Arsenal and Chelsea having previously shown a strong interest in the player.
However, with both those clubs looking elsewhere for strikers in the summer, Spurs may now be in pole position to win the race for his signature, with the player said to be keen on a move to White Hart Lane.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has made Martinez his top target this January due to some unconvincing displays from the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado this season.
