It looks like Liverpool are set to name their first big name signing of the summer, and it looks likely that Jackson Martinez is set to move to Merseyside come the end of this season.
The story today is from Kopsource, who quoted Mexican Sports journalist Jorge Zambrano:
Jackson is a player from another part of the world, and so the Liverpool board have already made a down payment of 3 of the 9 million dollars, Now I can safely say that Jackson is a Liverpool player
According to the guys at Kopsource, they think that there is a high possibility of this happening, and there very well might. Although I do find it strange, because the article also mentions that the Reds might loan him out following this transfer. Will bring you more developments on this in our usual ‘Top 3 transfer Rumours of the Week’ column come Friday.
One more piece of news, and it comes from Milan. Aquilani is set to return to Liverpool in the summer, with the Italian giants preferring moves from others or quite simply not fielding the Italian midfielder. He is stuck on 21 appearances and is seemingly limited to appearances off the bench for the rest of the season (count as 1/2 of an appearance). The current deal stipulates that he has to make 25 appearances for AC Milan to make the deal permanent at a price of around 5 million pounds. Now it looks likely that Dalglish will loan him out again or maybe even cancel the contract on a mutual agreement.
