Wenger revives interest in £8 million South American goal machine

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have renewed their interest in Porto striker Radamel Falcao despite being knocked back in a bid to sign him in the summer, according to The Sun.

The Colombian has been in sensational form for the Portuguese giants so far this season, bagging 18 goals in 24 games.

And Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has decided he needs to bolster his attacking options after seeing his Gunners side fail to beat Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart despite completely dominating the Citizens.

Andrey Arshavin has looked off the boil thus far and Robin van Persie, Arsenal’s most potent striker, has missed large parts of the last couple of seasons through injury.

Arsenal had an enquiry turned down during the summer but are keen to return and feel they can get their man for around £8 million.

Falcao first came to Arsenal's attention when he hit Porto's 51st minute winner in last year's Champions League round of 16 first leg clash in Portugal - before the Gunners thrashed the Portuguese side 5-0 in the return clash.
