Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have both bid for Radamel Falcao, according to the players' agent, report

The Colombian striker scored the winning goal in the Europa League final to cap off the perfect season for Porto, in which they also claimed the Portuguese League title and domestic cup.

The striker has a buy out clause of £26 million, but that price tag hasn't put off Arsenal and Spurs, who have both bid for the forward, according to his agent Claudio Mossio.

"Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are the two clubs that are keen to sign him, and have already tabled an offer for Falcao," he said.


"He is 25-years-old, but he still has plenty of room for improvement. The problem with a transfer to Italy is that he does not have a EU passport. He has a contract for two more years with Porto and has a buy-out clause of €30m.

"The club that matches that clause has a good chance of signing him. Porto want to open contract talks and offer him a new and improved deal to insert a higher minimum fee release clause."

Both clubs are looking to bolster their forward line after disappointing seasons.

While Arsenal fell away in the title race, Tottenham suffered some indifferent form after qualifying for the quarter-final of the Champions League.
