Arsene has a pretty good ratio of stars-to-duds when it comes to the transfer market, and it looks like he is ready to unearth another clever signing.
Arsene Wenger is leading the chase for Colombian scoring sensation Falcao.
The Arsenal boss is desperate to sign a striker with Emmanuel Adebayor’s uncertain future at the Emirates and Eduardo’s broken leg.
Falcao, 22, scored 38 goals in 58 games for River Plate.
He has terrific pace and is able to finish with either foot.
Wenger is lining up an £8million bid but the Argentines value him closer to £12m.
Arsenal’s interest is sure to annoy Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson. (The Sun)
The 22-year-old impish striker is supposedly one hell of a lethal finisher, and has a remarkable strike rate in the Argentine league, catching the attention of a few clubs lately. Wenger is in need of a striker, especially given the likely departure of Adebayor, and Radamel Falcao may be just the ticket. Do Gunners fans think that a fully-fit Eduardo and RVP partnership would be Arsene’s best frontline combo or could this Colombian prove to be a worthy contender?
