World Class Striker ‘Tells Arsenal He Wants To Join Them’ – Reports

By on August 27, 2014

According to reports today, Radamel Falcao has told Arsenal he is willing to make the move to the Emirates on loan until the end of the season.

We are currently facing a striker crisis following the news that Olivier Giroud is set to be sidelined until the new year with a broken foot and the newspaper are linking us with a whole host of names, including a shock move for Nikola Zigic.

It’s not exactly clear what Arsene Wenger’s plan is but the Metro are reporting today that Monaco striker Radamel Falcao has told Arsenal that he wants to move to the Emirates until the end of the season.

Falcao is available on loan as Monaco are keen to get his hefty wages off their books due to new cost-cutting measures put in place by the clubs owner, and the report suggests that a deal for the Colombian international would set us back around £20m when you factor in a loan fee and the players wages.

Obviously Falcao would be a dream signing and he’d be a huge upgrade on Giroud, but I personally don’t think there’s any chance Arsene would sanction spending that kind of money on a short-term move.

Maybe if we could persuade Monaco to lower their fee and Falcao to reduce his wage demands, it would make the deal more manageable. Otherwise I just don’t see it happening.

    If he (Wenger) likes, let him sign a covetous striker and if not, he would be the one to suffer for it. His sturboness, coupled with the management sturboness are things to ponder upon by the fans. He can still make do with the ‘Transfer market’, for the remaining 5 days.

    I still prefare cavani.. but I dont see any of it happening .. I think is time for wenger to leave.. he doesn’t know what his doing… giroud is injured and his not doing anything abt it.. is he going to depend on sanogo or who?
    How can we cope with thr big teams?

    Despite what Wenger says,most fans are agreed that another striker is needed especially if Poldoski were to go. If the German were to leave and Wenger depends on any of Campbell,Sanoga and Walcott to deliver and they fail,the fm shd blame nobody except himself.
    When anything goes wrong he blames everyone,the ref,etc . He shd look at the mirror and know he is accountable 98% of all decisions.

    Ok I’m seeing things different not sure why tho! I feel 20million one season is a lot but I feel it can happen falcao also puma signed! (Prob won’t make a difference) I’d only imagine it possible if we could have him permanent in end! What if he won us every trophy (not by himself obviously) would that not have paid for his loan in income? May sound silly but I’d accept him to get trophys added to our new shiny two! If not then remy NOT zigic

    Then Wenger will say we don’t need Falcao,we have Sanogo.

    wenger said that he hd been given enough money to by,y cant he do it?we r struggling so much to win our games.Can somebody tell wenger,we need a world class striker who can score and not struggle,a defender and a midfielder now tht Arteta is injured and chambalain is completely not in his form.Its not a secret,te way we r,struggling,no trophies.Professor can u open ua eyes.Its no longer our game infact worse than last season,what a shame struggling with small teams like Besktas.Break the bank.
