French international Marvin Martin has alerted Arsenal and Tottenham by admitting he wants to leave Ligue 1 side Sochaux this summer. The Daily Mail have quotes from an interview that Martin gave to France Football in which he says that he is ready to ‘play overseas’ but concedes a deal may not be done until after the Euros.
There had already been reports of contact from Arsenal for the player but nothing substantial had come to fruition. However, with these comments it is likely that talks will now take a more positive step. The North London pair will have to act quickly if they want to get the midfielder’s signature as a host of European clubs such as Valencia and Borussia Dortmund are vying to sign him.
