Colombian striker Jackson Martinez is set to finalise a move to Portuguese giants Porto.

The 25-year-old is currently with Mexican outfit Jaguares and was strongly linked with Premier League Liverpool.

But now a move to Porto is close to being finalised in the coming days and he is looking forward to the switch.

"Only small details remain, I understand they are finalising the details in the negotiations between Jaguares and Porto, but it's not a done deal yet," he told Ojogo.

"Those small details take time to resolve, but my part is done, so the most likely thing is that I join FC Porto.

"Sooner or later we will be able to say I am a Porto player, but I'm still waiting. I'm eager for this challenge.

"I hope everything works out as it would be very good to play for Porto. My idea is to get there and develop even more as a player."
