£45m Chelsea striker target wants Premier League move

Next Story

Chelsea striker target Radamel Falcao has opened the door to a Premier League move, admitting he’d love to one day ply his trade in the English top flight.

The Colombian hitman has been heavily linked with a £45million move to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, with a January transfer chance thought to be on the cards.

Falcao has been scoring goals for fun in Spain, proving himself to be prolific in La Liga after successful spell in both Portugal and South America.

And, with Chelsea circling the 26-year-old, he could add England to his CV sooner rather than later.

"England? One day, I could go. It is a game I have watched for a long time and one day I would like to sample it,” he told The Times.

"I used to watch it on television when I was a kid. Players like Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, (Gianfranco) Zola. But the one I supported was (Faustino) Asprilla, when he was at Newcastle. I think I could adapt to England. I think I could score goals."

If Roberto Di Matteo needed a first-hand look at the player, he got it during the Super Cup on August 31st, when Falcao struck three times in a 4-1 win against Chelsea.

And, with only two strikers on the books in the shape of Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge, it’s easy to see why Chelsea would move for another player in the position in the New Year.
