Monaco striker Radamel Falcao could be on his way to the Premier League on transfer deadline day after he was offered to Arsenal and Manchester City for £55m, according to the Guardian.

The two clubs are now said to be battling for his signature, although Man City are finding it difficult to keep their bid within the constraints of Financial Fair Play, as they were handed heavy sanctions over the summer for breaking its rules over the previous two years.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini is reportedly keen to add Falcao to an attack that already includes Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic. Also at the Etihad Stadium is the injured Alvaro Negredo, but he could leave for a return to Spain by 2300 BST on Monday evening with Real Madrid and Valencia both interested.

Arsenal are without first-choice striker Olivier Giroud until the end of the calendar year due to a broken tibia, and their supporters urged Arsene Wenger to sign a new forward after Yaya Sanogo failed to make a significant impression as Giroud’s replacement in the 1-1 draw with Leicester City on Sunday.

Falcao’s representatives are looking to seal the Colombian a move to Real Madrid, with his future at Monaco appearing uncertain. The 28-year-old has scored twice in three Ligue 1 games so far this season, having helped them to second place in 2013-14.
