Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all long-term admirers of the forward, and have scouted him intensively in the last 18 months, fulling speculation that they will now move in. Martin is expected to be available for a bargain £8 million price, despite having three-years left to run on his Sochaux contract, that was only renewed late last year. He currently earns around £45,000-a-week on that deal, but is expected to command at least £60,000-a-week, if he moves to the Premier League as expected.
