Porto striker Radamel Falcao has intimated that the Portugese club may choose to sell him, with the Tottenham and Arsenal target currently in talks with management over his contract.

Falcao has long been a target for both Tottenham and Arsenal, but while he has expressed a desire to stay with his current club, the 25-year-old acknowledged that Porto may sell if they can get a decent price.

"I have two more years left on my contract, but we are speaking about a renewal,” Falcao said.


"At Porto, many players, and even the manager, Andre Villas Boas, have clubs interested in them. Porto is the most selling club in the world.

"I am calm because I know that I can play in another championship, but I still do not know if this moment has come."

Falcao has a £30 million exit clause in his contract, and while Arsenal are generally quite thrifty when it comes to spending on players, Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to fork out after Arsenal went a sixth season in a row without a trophy.

Tottenham meanwhile, are on the lookout for a striker, and after Falcao starred for League and Europa Cup winning Porto this season, Harry Redknapp reportedly sees the star as capable of taking Tottenham into the coveted top four finish on the Barclays Premier League table.
