Wigan Athletic are having talks this week with Colombia international striker Jackson Martinez and his agent over a proposed £3.5 million January move to the club.
Vital Wigan believe that the 23 year old arrived in Wigan on Monday to take a look around the Latics and start talks over a proposed move from Colombian club Independiente Medelin who Latics have already agreed a fee with, as first reported here two weeks ago.
Latics boss Roberto Martinez is desperate to add to his squad in January and following Marlon King`s prison sentence it is understood that Martinez is looking to bring two strikers into the club, one as Kings direct replacement, a squad man and the other a proven top level goal scorer.
The Colombia striker is highly regarded and considered one of South America`s hottest properties at the moment, he is lightening quick and a real eye for goal and at just over 6 foot he is also good in the air, a close friend of Latics player and compatriot Hugo Rodallega, Martinez is desperate for the move to go through.
The Latics Hit 2000 Points Milestone
