Martinez came to England as one of the 'Three Amigo's' in July 1995 and has played over 150 games for The Latics, but he was released by Steve Bruce at the end of last season.
He has also attracted interest from SPL side Motherwell and his agent, Francis Martin confirmed Hartlepool are one of a number of club's keen to sign him.
"Roberto is close to getting a firm offer from Motherwell but there is also interest from Hartlepool and several Spanish clubs," he said.
Meanwhile, reports in the media have linked Pool ace Tommy Miller with a move to Norwegian side Brann Bergen.
Brann finished as runners-up in the Eliteserien last year, qualifying for the Champions League and speculation in the press said they were lining up a £1 million bid for Pool's free-scoring midfield sensation.
Middlesbrough were also being linked with 22-year-old Miller, whose 22 goals earned him a place in the Third Division Team of the Season.
