Wigan Athletic are being linked with another raid on the South American market and rumours abound that Argentine youngster Claudio Yacob is very much in the spotlight as far as the Latics are concerned.
The defensive midfield player is currently at Racing Club de Avellaneda of the Argentine top division where he has made over 100 appearances and Yacob was part of the Argentina under 20 team that won the U20 world cup in 2007.
The 23 year old holds an Italian passport so there would be no problem with work permits but Martinez could be in a four way fight with Napoli, Palermo and Espanyol also interested in the £3 million rated player.
Yacob`s agent, Marcelo Simoni, is reported as saying he is coming to Europe in the next few weeks to tie up a deal for his man.
