Arsenal On Alert As £48m ‘Target’ Set For Shock Move

By on June 16, 2014

Arsenal have been placed on red alert with reports coming out of France suggesting that Monaco have surprisingly made Radamel Falcao available for transfer.

Le10 Sport are claiming that the Ligue 1 club are ready to cash in on Falcao this summer as new boss Leonardo Jardim doesn’t feel he’s able to play in his 4-3-3 formation.

As difficult as this is to believe, the report suggests that Jardim wants to sell the Colombian hitman and use the money to rebuild his squad with, and Monaco are no longer the free-spending club they once were due to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play guidelines.

So, if Falcao really is on the market then who’s going to be in for him? Well, Le10 Sport believe that the 28-year-old’s agent Jorge Mendes has already been sounding out potential suitors and the usual names have been banded about.

Chelsea were named but with Diego Costa on his way to Stamford Bridge it’s highly unlikely they’ll also go for Falcao, while a switch to Real Madrid has also been suggested. That’s far more believable and I’d expect they will be leading the race for his signature.

With Arsene Wenger desperate to sign a world class striker this summer Arsenal’s name has cropped up once again. We were surprisingly linked with Falcao back in February when the Daily Star claimed that PUMA were going to help fund a move for the player and now it seems we’ve been alerted to his availability this summer.

However, before we all get too excited, a potential fee of £48m is likely to end any hopes we have of signing the striker. I really don’t think Arsene would spend that kind of money on a 28-year-old who will have very little sell on value and who’s still recovering from a serious knee injury.

I’d gladly be proved wrong on this one but I just don’t see it. Obviously we have the money to do it, but we also need to sign at least four players this summer and I’m simply not convinced Arsene would spend half his budget on one player.

He would be one hell of a signing though so fingers crossed Arsene is going to prove me wrong and make the Colombian our marquee signing this summer!

    Same.I prefer Balotelli than Falcao, he’s younger and nobody knows how Falcao is gonna return from his injury.

    28 years old who might become an injury prone when he returns from his long time injury.. We should rather go for balotelli..

    wenger would never pay that kind of money on a 28 yr old. and rightly so.
    if mario can be tamed slightly by wenger imagine the powerhouse mario would be in his second coming to soccer mecca.
    include sami k and we would be just fine thank you very much.

    You would have more chance of seeing gooners hero worship Piers Morgan, than seeing Falcao in an arsenal shirt.
    My ideal choice would be Reus, Balotelli or Lukaku in that order.

    48m for a 28 year old.

    Like Wenger is dumb enough to pay that.

    Mario the best gun

      June 17, 2014 at 6:13 pm

      Why do people rate mario so I high? His goal record isn’t that great certainly not compared to world class strikers, he’s had a good season with Milan 30 goals his best to date but that’s only the 2nd time he’s ever got over 24 goals in a season an he causes trouble everywhere he goes an we haven’t got a side of leaders do we really need another anelka coming in he’s a talent but I think it’s a big risk
