Jackson Martinez has provided encouragement to his many suitors by revealing he has no preference over which league to play in when he leaves FC Porto.

The prolific Colombian striker has been heavily linked with the Estadio do Dragao exit door in recent months, with speculation reaching fever pitch in January as his agent headed to London, with links to both Arsenal and Chelsea circulating.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was even forced to publicly deny an imminent Martinez arrival. And interest in him is sure to heat up once again in the summer.

But all suitors look to have an equal chance of buying Martinez, as he told Colombian daily El Tiempo: "It would be beautiful to one day be at another big clubs like Porto, which are a great team and at which I am happy.


"I love the English league, the Spanish, the Italian and the German.

"I have no preference between them."

Martinez has been prolific for Porto so far this season, hitting the back of the net 13 times in 17 Primeira Liga games.

He also scored twice in the club's Champions League group stage campaign.
