Arsenal have been snubbed by yet another of their striker targets, following various reports suggesting that Radamel Falcao has agreed to move to rivals Manchester United on a season-long loan.

Arsene Wenger has been on the market for a striker and also admitted that he will buy a striker if the right option becomes available.

The Gunners were said to be interested in Falcao, but United seem to have stolen a march ahead of their rivals and secured the deal for the highly coveted striker.

The second snub for the north London club comes from Falcao's compatriot Jackson Martinez, who was linked with Arsenal earlier in the summer.

The striker, who has been in impressive form for current employers FC Porto, was a target for many clubs across Europe and following the injury to Olivier Giroud and the snub from Falcao, it was suggested that Wenger might turn his attention back to the Colombian international.

But the striker has come out and appreciated the interest and confirmed that he will remain at the Portuguese club beyond the current summer transfer window.

"It is normal to attract interest from other clubs when a player is in good form. But I limit myself to playing and there are other people who take care of the rest," Martinez said, as quoted in the Express.

"I simply want to enjoy each day and not talk about the future. Everything comes together in time."

"Will I continue [at Porto]? Right now, yes. It will be quiet today and tomorrow will also be quiet. I'm happy to be at Porto and, as I said, the rest does not concern me," the Colombian striker added.
