Red alert as Falcao reveals EPL ambition

LONDON, England, October 6 – Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao has revealed he is keen to follow in the footsteps of his idol Faustino Asprilla by moving to the Premier League.

Falcao has been linked with several Premier League clubs including Chelsea and it has been reported that the Colombia international could move to Stamford Bridge in a £45 million deal during the January transfer window.

The 26-year-old, who underlined his talent with a hat-trick against Chelsea in the European Super Cup earlier this season, admits a switch to the Premier League would appeal to him because he grew up watching fellow Colombian Asprilla in action for Newcastle during the 1990s.

“England? One day, I could go. It is a game I have watched for a long time and one day I would like to sample it,” Falcao told The Times.

“I used to watch it on television when I was a kid. Players like Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, (Gianfranco) Zola. But the one I supported was (Faustino) Asprilla, when he was at Newcastle.

“I think I could adapt to England. I think I could score goals.”
