Martins makes eyes at move to Arsenal
Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins has admitted he would find it hard to turn down Arsenal if they attempted to sign him. The Nigerian has been linked with a move to Emirates Stadium throughout the summer, and speculation over a potential transfer would increase further if Gunners striker Emmanuel Adebayor completes a switch to Barcelona. 'Arsenal is a big club that everyone wants to play for. I am thrilled and it will be nice to play for such a team,' the 23-year-old told The Sun. 'But, now that I am a Newcastle player, there is nothing much to say. If it is true, both clubs would have to reach an agreement. 'Is Arsenal a good club? Yes. Would I love to play there? Probably, if Newcastle are ready to listen to them. But if Newcastle says no then it'll be no.' Martins, currently on holiday, added: 'Because I still have a contract, I expect the club to speak to me when I get back. I am not saying I want to go but, if anything happens, that's football.'
