Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with huge interest as we tell them about Metro‘s latest claim.
The Gunners have of course been the subject of a fair bit of bad fortune this weekend with the injury to Olivier Giroud and it seems that has finally prompted Arsene Wenger to think seriously over signing another forward.
The Arsenal boss is now reportedly willing to offer Monaco a massive £20 million in order to land Radamel Falcao on loan and as one of our punters notes, this is a huge and quite frankly outrageous amount just for a loan deal.
The reports from Metro go as far to claim that the player himself is keen on linking up with Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium and the prospect of Falcao performing in the Premier League is something that most neutral punters are keen on.
Our landlord moves over from the bar and to the pool table where we are discussing the shocking fee for one season and reminds us that it does cover all the wages and winning bonuses for the Colombian and could even lead to a permanent deal.
Arsenal fans. Would you be keen on paying this much money for a player just for a season-long loan? Are things really that desperate? Let us know your thoughts below.
