Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly set to go head-to-head during the January transfer window to land Porto striker Jackson Martinez and West Bromwich Albion's Saido Berahino.

According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League rivals are both on the market to bolster their striking options and have zeroed in on the two strikers.

Colombian international Martinez has been constantly linked with a move to England in recent months and it is believed that Liverpool are keen on signing him to ease their problems in front of the goal.

The Reds splashed out a reported £16m to land Mario Balotelli in the summer, but the Italian has been a disaster since his arrival at Anfield and he is yet to score for the Merseyside club in the Premier League.

On the other hand, Tottenham have also suffered similarly when it comes to scoring goals with strikers Roberto Soldaldo and Emmanuel Adebayor failing to find the back of the net on a consistent basis.

This has prompted Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to look for alternatives and he has also targeted the Colombian striker, who currently plays in Portugal.

The Reds will hold the edge in the battle for Martinez, as his agent recently revealed that the Merseyside club have made their interest known, but will have to meet his £27.5m release clause to land him.

Apart from the Colombian striker, the two clubs are interested in signing West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino, who has been in impressive form for the Premier League club this season.

The English striker, has scored seven goals in 15 appearances for the club this season and his performances earned him a call up to the Three Lions squad for their Euro 2016 qualifier game against Slovenia and for a friendly against Scotland.

The England U21 striker has also admitted in the past that he is willing to leave the club to realise his dreams of playing in the Champions League and in the World Cup for England.

However, the Baggies will be reluctant to let their star forward leave in the middle of the season and if they do, the report claims that it will take a bid of around £25m to let him go from Alan Irvine's team.
