Arsenal make move to sign former Manchester United and Chelsea flop

Arsenal have been linked with a surprise move to sign former Manchester United and Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao during this summer’s transfer window.

The Colombia international is currently in the ranks of Monaco, where he has found plenty of success, but it appears that he could favour a fresh challenge with the Principality outfit struggling in their division.

According to Don Balon, manager Unai Emery is said to be eyeing a move for the ex-Premier League player and he is prepared to assure him of a regular role with the club.

It is added that the likes of Real Betis and Sevilla are also keen on signing him but the Gunners are willing to offer him with significant wages to make a return to England.

The north London side already possess the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette upfront, but Emery seems keen on pursuing another marksman with Danny Welbeck heading through the exit door.

Still, any move for Falcao would come as a surprise, unless Emery is prepared to slot one of Aubameyang or Lacazette into a wider role for the forthcoming campaign.

Falcao, who has already turned 33, experienced disappointing loan spells with United and Chelsea between 2014 and 2016, where he managed just five Premier League goals.

He has since redeemed himself with nearly 70 goals for Monaco in the past three seasons and he seems keen on pursuing another big challenge before calling quits on his career.

He is currently valued at around £21m.
