Arsenal target evaluates future

Ibrahima Toure is said to be evaluating his future at Monaco after seeing the club spend £52.8 million to bring Columbian striker Rademel Falcao to Ligue 1.

The rich influx of talent in the principality has unsettled the Senegalese international, who's 18 goals last season where instrumental in earning Monaco promotion. 

It is believed Monaco would be willing to allow the player to go out on loan next season and Celtic have reportedly shown a keen interest as Gary Hooper is looking to back to his home country in hope of being included in England's 2014 World Cup squad.

Toure currently finds himself in a similar situation to that of Nene at Paris Saint-Germain last season after Zlatan Ibrahimovic arrived at Parc des Princes.

Toure, speaking to reporters, said: "I wanted to show I can play in the French top league. But if the coach doesn't give you the chance it's normal to think of an exit."

The 27-year-old currently has two years remaining on his deal at the Stade Louis II after joining from United Arab Emirates team Ajman Club in 2012 on a free transfer. 

The striker has previously stated he dreams of playing in the Premier League. 

"Playing in the Premier League is my dream. That is my wish," Toure told L'Equipe in 2012.

Monaco have already had problems with another one of their key players from their promotion-winning squad after defensive midfielder Nampalys Mendy expressed his desire to leave the club earlier in the summer.
