Arsenal planning shock move for AS Monaco striker?

Falcao to Arsenal?

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery is reportedly keen on luring Radamel Falcao back to the Premier League when the current campaign comes to a close.

The Colombian has already told Monaco chiefs that he is willing to part ways with the club following their dreadful performance in the league where they are just three points ahead of the drop zone.

According to Don Balon, both Arsenal and Inter are looking into potential moves for the marksman but the latter are said to have been put off by Monaco's £21.5m asking price.

Falcao has previously failed with loan spells at both Manchester United and Chelsea respectively but Emery nonetheless seems keen on pursuing him as a potential back-up to the starting lineup.

Arsenal have already confirmed that Danny Welbeck will be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of the campaign, and they are likely to pursue a cost-cut replacement ahead of next season.
