Porto striker Jackson Martinez insists he is focused on his current club amid rumours that Chelsea, Liverpool and Barcelona could be preparing bids for him.

The Colombian has netted 11 goals in his first 12 appearances for Porto this season after joining the club from Mexican side Jaguares in the summer.

Martinez insists he has not spoken to any other clubs and prefers to ignore speculation and focus on his own progress.

“Chelsea and Barcelona? Sincerely I have not spoken with anybody but this is a good signal about my performances in the Portuguese Liga,” he told O Jogo.

“Rumours are normal because I am working with success in Porto and scoring goals but I am calm, if the papers say there are offers that does not worry me.

“Now I am focussed exclusively on my work for Porto, I prefer to ignore the rumours about clubs being interested.”
