Martinez has attracted the attention of clubs all over Europe after another impressive season in which he has scored 20 league goals in 28 games.
The Colombian forward is rated at £28.16 million by transfermarket.co.uk and Fichajes.net have reported that he is close on a deal which would see him move to the North London club.

A striker of Martinez’s caliber will no doubt help fan-favourite, Harry Kane, to develop even further after he became the first Spurs player to net 30 goals in a season since Gary Lineker.
If Pochettino can strengthen his squad again this summer Spurs will have a good chance of battling against their competitors in their search for consistent Champions League football.
All parties involved at Spurs may be sceptical about spending around £30 million on a player after the signings of Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado following Gareth Bale’s transfer were deemed as ‘flops’, but it will be interesting to see if the club pursue Martinez.
