Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly want a new striker, and Radamel Falcao is apparently one player who could appear on their wishlist.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Radamel Falcao is one of the players that Wolves could be interested in heading into the January transfer window.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have made an extremely bright start to life back in the top flight. Following their 3-1 win away at Spurs at the weekend, Wolves sit seventh in the Premier League, 14 points clear of the relegation zone. 

Despite their success, they have not been the most prolific in front of goal, with 23 goals coming in their opening 20 games. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Mail reports that a striker is on Nuno’s wishlist for next month.

And the Mail adds that Falcao is one of the players that could be targeted, with Wolves apparently keen on the former Manchester United and Chelsea loanee.

The 32-year-old has enjoyed a decent year in Ligue 1 with Monaco, scoring seven goals in 16 top flight appearances for the Principality side. 

Falcao’s connections with Jorge Mendes certainly make a deal seem possible. Joao Moutinho – who also has connections with Mendes – made the move from Monaco to Molineux in the summer, so perhaps there is a chance that his former teammate may end up following him at some stage during the coming weeks.
