Radamel Falcao has told Arsenal he is ready to join them on loan until the end of the season to ease their striker crisis.
Arsenal are currently in turmoil after their only senior striker, Olivier Giroud, picked up a serious injury, but Falcao could provide them with a solution.
The Colombian international has been made available for loan by his club Monaco – and the Daily Telegraph reports that he wants to join Arsenal.
It’s claimed that the striker is keen on moving to the Emirates Stadium for the season, with a proposed switch to Real Madrid stalling, and all that remains is for Arsenal to agree to paying the loan fee.
Monaco want £20million to rent Falcao out for campaign and while it is a high price, the fee does cover all of his wages and bonuses.
Arsenal are considering their options with an announcement on Giroud’s injury expected shortly.
