For the second time in a few weeks, reports are circulating that Arsenal have lost the race to sign Jackson Martinez. This time to Atletico Madrid.
The Porto and Colombia forward was announced as an AC Milan player in mid-June and that has failed to come to fruition. Now comes word that Martinez is signed and sealed for Atletico Madrid. The rumor makes more sense as Atletico is in the Champions League and presumably capable of paying both the transfer and wages of a premium forward. Whether Arsenal were chasing the player as hard as rumored isn't clear but supporters will quickly get over their joy at the signing of Petr Cech if a new forward isn't added to compete with Olivier Giroud this summer.
