Radamel Falcao Close To Joining Arsenal?

The transfer rumour mill is in overdrive and the biggest name is being linked to Arsenal, Real Madrid and Manchester City.

Radamel Falcao, one of the most courted strikers in world football looks certain to move from AS Monaco, and the big question is where to?

Real Madrid has clearly been Falcao’s preferred destination and after banking £59.7 million for Angel Di Maria, the smart money would be on him joining Gareth Bale, Cristian Ronaldo and James Rodriguez at the Santiago Bernabeu. But do they still need to offload Karim Benzema first?

Manchester City are apparently sniffing around too, with Manchester City holding talks with Falcao’s representatives according to his agent.

And then we come to Arsenal.

We’ve been linked to Falcao for a few weeks now and the thinking is, that we’d sign him on a years loan for £20 million. This would allow Arsenal to have a top calibre striker at the club while Olivier Giroud recovers from a broken bone in his ankle, and the Columbian striker would still be free to join Real Madrid next summer.

The thinking is that Falcao only coming for a year wouldn’t “kill” the other players at Arsenal, as Arsene puts it, and Falcao would still have the move he’s always dreamed of.

And apparently, we’ve given up on our £50 million pursuit of Edinson Cavani, as we’ve left negotiations too late in the day for anything to happen.

So what do you think? Are Arsenal going to sign one of the best players in the world and have a world class striker at the club?

Or are we promoting within, using Yaya Sanogo as our main striker?

  1. As Wenger says: we have five strikers besides Giroud: Sanchez, Sanogo, Campbell, Podolski, Theo. Absolutely zero need to get someone like Remy in, and I agree with Wenger that only a top profile player like Falcao can fit the bill.

    Sanchez is better than Balotelli, so no regrets on that one, and I’m happy with Sanchez in the CF role. What a performance against Besiktas, and I honestly think it’s going to get better.

  2. Play poker by all means Wenger but if you have not got a cdm,cb or top striker by the close on Monday the balloon will go up on our next home game-Man City-if we get beaten with the same inadequate squad. The Villa game last season will be as nothing compared.

  3. No time for grooming a young striker. Arsenal needs a serious talented & mature striker even if Giroud was not injured Arsenal still needs a striker. Arsenal needs a striker that can make the opposition’s defense shake. A striker who can hold about 3 defenders from advancing & Arsenal only lacks that.

  4. I also use this opportunity because arsenal are needing a shap striker like falca’o,i Abubakar yahaya ribi

  5. If Arsenal reach the fouth place of EPL at the end of this season with this squad of players,it will be a remarkable achievement for Mr A.Wenger.Forget champions league,I predict an early ooust out.A.W will got so many reasons to say that be was right as Arsenal will continue to have a very good balance of accounts.
