Arsenal set to join race for La Liga star

Arsene Wenger has been given the go ahead to join the race for Atletico Madrid striker Falcao, according to the Daily Mail.

The £40m rated Columbian has been strongly linked with a move to either Manchester City or Chelsea in the summer, but Arsenal are now reportedly ready to spend big to prize the 27 year old away from the Vicente Calderon.

Despite signing Lukas Podolski and  Olivier Giroud last summer, many fans of ‘The Gunners’ feel that a replacement for Robin Van Persie is still needed, and the prolific Falcao would certainly fit the bill.

Having faced criticism for his lack of willingness to spend, it looks like Arsene Wenger is set to go all guns blazing for the striker.

‘We can do it,’ said Wenger when asked if he could sign Falcao.

‘If we find a player of top, top quality we will take him.’

The former Porto FC striker has been in fine form this season and has already netted 25 goals in 26 appearances.
