In a recent report from the Mirror, it was stated that due to Arsenal's fine financial results, the club will have a good amount of cash to spend during the January transfer window.

As of now, the Arsenal team has not been looking bad, but an extra boost of firepower on the offensive end could just be what the Gunners need to be able to win some more key matches.

Based on the report, this cash could lead Wenger to join the chase for the ruthless goal scorer, Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian forward has proven time and again that he is one of the best strikers in the world. He has the ability to make any team an offensive threat against any team.

In the UEFA Super Cup match between Champions League victor Chelsea and Europa League winners Atletico Madrid, Falcao was a monster the Chelsea defense just couldn't stop. The on-form striker went on to score a fantastic hat trick against the Blues, who only managed to score one goal of consolation.

As mentioned before, the striker has the ability to tear apart defenses of any league. He is demolishing the Spanish league, and he demonstrated that he has the ability to be a huge threat in the Premier League after that superb performance against Chelsea.

In the Premiership, Arsenal currently find themselves in a decent position in the league table. However, the Gunners will need to win more important matches against the bigger teams in England.

The North-London club has already beaten Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield and drawn 1-1 against the current Premier League champions, Manchester City. Despite these good showings against two good teams, the Gunners soon lost a 2-1 home game against Chelsea, a match in which Arsenal should have done much better. 


With a signing like Falcao in January, Arsenal might be able to make a gigantic push for the Premier League title in the second half of the season. If that plan doesn't work, the Gunners could start fresh in a 2013-2014 campaign, in which Arsenal remains title contenders from start to finish.

Along with some of the attacking forces such as Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Gervinho and Santi Cazorla, Arsenal could very well become the best team in England. 

This signing could be a turnaround for a club that has been in search of a trophy since an FA Cup victory in 2005. 

So, do you think this is just another transfer hope for the Gunners in January, or is it the real deal?
