So Arsene Wenger does not think that Arsenal need the striking services of Radamerl Falcao then, it seems. The Frenchman must have seen something in the 17 goal free Premier League appearances of Yaya Sanogo that the rest of us are missing.
Because the news all over the media at the moment, including Metro, is that the Colombia international striker Radamel Falcao will be signing for our Premier League rivals Man United today. We don’t know whether it is a permanent move or the season long loan deal that has been talked about it and frankly I could not care less. I am just thoroughly cheesed off.
Apparently Falcao’s current club Monaco wanted him off the wage bill and he was offered to a few Premier League clubs, including Arsenal. And with Olivier Giroud out of action until the new year and Sanogo still learning how to use his own legs, you would think that Wenger would see that as a perfect opportunity. Apparently not, Gooners, so have we just waved goodbye to any realistic title hopes by passing up the chance to sign one of the world’s best centre forwards?
And I am starting to think that Wenger is not going to sign anyone at all, unless Kim Kallstrom is available of course….
