Falcao on Wolves radar

31st December 2018, 13:44 by Jack Ogalbe

Wolves are reportedly plotting a January swoop for veteran Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian has netted seven times for Les Rouges et Blancs in Ligue 1 this season but is believed to be growing frustrated with their poor form.

Thierry Henry's side currently sit 19th in Ligue 1 and Falcao is being linked with a move away next month.

Reports in France say Galatasaray are keen but Wolves have now entered the race for his signature and it is thought the club's links with Jorge Mendes could help seal a deal.

Joao Moutinho made the move from the Principality to Molineux over the summer, while another of Mendes' clients, Ivan Cavaleiro, previously played for Monaco before heading to Waterloo Road.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is thought to be keen on a new striker in January but it is unclear how any deal would be structured, with Falcao still having 18 months to run on his Monaco contract.

The 32-year-old previously played in the Premier League but struggled during his loan spells at both Manchester United and Chelsea.
