The transfer link ‘Radamel Falcao to Arsenal’ stormed the whole internet world last week, and I’m pretty sure a lot of the Gooner faithful would’ve been pleased to hear a player of the Colombian’s calibre linked to The Gunners.
The 26-year-old striker was strongly linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderon last summer, with Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Arsenal all cited as a possible destinations.
But the move couldn’t be materialized largely due to his reported £48 million buy-out clause and Atletico Madrid’s strong will to hold on to him.
With news that Arsene Wenger has recently been entrusted with at least £35million to strengthen his squad during the winter transfer window, there seems to be no qualms about the possibility of a new face in the Arsenal squad. This new face could possibly be that which we all dream of, Radamel Falcao.
The Colombian international has been a joy to watch this season, with his goal tally now up to 11 in just seven matches for his club.
I believe most people would have seen him play. But for those who haven’t, he is a typical poacher, a proven goal scorer, with great heading ability and fairly ambidextrous. He is also very strong, technically gifted and well composed on and off the pitch.
The Atletico Madrid hitman could however join any of the Manchester twins or our very own blue neighbour, considering their recent money splash and squad revolution.
Wenger is also widely renowned for his disinclination to signing players that command a transfer fee beyond £17million.
Only time will tell when Wenger will change, and fans will start to feel enthusiastic whenever a world class player is linked with their club, whatever the transfer fee may be
Who said no? No one saw the Santi Cazorla transfer coming, did they?
Falcao could be taken along a similar path to mark the beginning of an entirely new era at The Emirates.
I hope the manager gets to make Falcao a priority in January because with him on board, Arsenal would certainly look more deadly upfront.
Falcao at Arsenal, nothing would be more better!
