Radamel Falcao Keen On Making £20m Loan Move To Arsenal

By on August 27, 2014

The summer transfer window is now reaching its climax and managers are working hard to make some last minute additions to their squad, so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip. Today, Radamel Falcao is open to joining Arsenal on loan.

Colombia Radamel Falcao

Monaco hitman Radamel Falcao is open to the idea of joining Arsenal on a season-long loan deal that would cost the Gunners around £20m, according to the Telegraph.

Our need to bring in another striker deepened with the news that Olivier Giroud is facing at least three months on the sidelines with a broken ankle and it looks like Arsene Wenger is going to have to now make a late dash into the transfer market.

The likes of Edinson Cavani, Loic Remy and Danny Welbeck were linked on Tuesday but the Telegraph claim that the boss is now targetting Monaco striker Radamel Falcao as a potential target.

The newspaper suggests that the 28-year-old would be open to moving to the Emirates Stadium on a season-long loan, but it would cost us somewhere in the region of £20m – which would cover a loan fee as well as the strikers wages.

No formal move for any striker is expected to be made until Giroud sees a specialist on Wednesday, but the initial signs aren’t good and it’s almost certain the French international will now be out for the foreseeable future leaving us short up front.

Falcao would be an excellent signing and if this report is accurate, then we should jump at the chance of signing him. The Colombian international is one of the deadliest strikers in the world and would give us a genuine goal threat in attack, and watching him link up with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez is a mouthwatering prospect.

However, £20m is a lot to pay for just a year loan and unfortunately I can’t see Wenger agreeing to pay that kind of money. We’ve got a season-defining few days ahead and hopefully the boss will make some moves in the transfer market once we beat Besiktas tonight.

    Slaven Bilic, the Besiktas coach talks a little too much. I bet his mouth will be shut after his team is beaten tonight. I predict 2-0 to the Arsenal.

    This supposition is total nonsense. Wenger should have long ago completed his business before now. He has year in and year out placed the Gunners in this funny position. Waiting to qualify for Champions League before buying any additional player is not sound and realistic management action let alone good judgement.

    This confused man is talking about Falcao, Cavani, Martinez and sign forgotten ones the likes of Zigic from some where from garbeg. I wish the day Wenger leaves Arsenal. With him we will not back to our glorious days. We need world class players to lift trophies, otherwise if you don’t have the cash keep calm and do what you can with the players at hand don’t suspend us linking with big names. We are ashamed many times with links but no one with class signing.

    it can be an excellent replacement but to me mr wenger can’t spend that amount of money on Flacao loan spell yet the money can buy aplayer like Remy or Welback

    Wenger thought that signing Alexis Sanchez is the greatest achievement of all times. He had a whole 3 months to do his transfer business, yet he ignored the most important areas in the team that needed addressing, that is, the centre forward, the defensive midfield and the central defense positions. And now, a few days to the close of the transfer window Arsenal have found themselves in a needless crisis. I can almost say with certainty that Wenger will do nothing to address the critical striker problem after stopping the seemly certain exit of Podolski, if only to prove his stubbornness and continue to frustrate Arsenal fans as he is accustomed to year in and year out.

    Wenger is so stubborn I wonder whether he’ll go for either Falcao of cavani as there is very little between the two players in terms of basic abilities.

    Have you stopped to ask yourself why Wenger has failed, so far, to put to bed some signings even when the incumbent player is willing ready and able like in the cases of Manolas and Carvalho (whose price has been reduced by a staggering 11 million pounds)? Your club is a recovering-shoe-string-budget operator. You are no Chelsea, Monaco, Man City or PSG, only this year in decade have you been able to cause a mild stir in the market with multiple noticeable ‘buys’. The intent is there but Wenger probably had a budget of 70 million pounds to which he added 15 million from the sale of Verminator to Barcelona. He has already spent about 63 million of his budget on Sanchez (35m), Debuchy (12) and Chambers (16)which leaves him with about 22m (7m from opening budget plus 15m from sale of Verminator. He still has to buy an additional central defender and a defensive midfielder and now a top striker? Think before you shout at Wenger.
