West Ham United should consider a January move for the Monaco front-man.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will be determined to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium this month, in an effort to guide his side to a tops even finish come the end of the season.

One particular area where the Chilean might want to strengthen is his centre-forward apartment, with Javier Hernandez facing an uncertain future, and Andy Carroll being far from reliable from a fitness perspective.

With this in mind, the Hammers might want to take a look at Monaco hitman Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian is attracting attention from Wolves, according to the Daily Mail, and Monaco could be tempted to sell the striker this month.

Falcao is a proven goalscorer, having bagged 293 goals in 521 career appearances for both club and country.

The 32-year-old is most effective when operating in and around the six-yard box, and that is exactly what West Ham need in the final third.

He would be the ideal strike partner for Marko Arnautovic, and the pair could forge a really devastating understanding with each other.

Falcao is under contract with Monaco until the summer of 2020, so the Ligue 1 side would surely be interested in selling him for a fee this moth, rather than face the prospect of losing him for nothing in 18 months time.

And if Pellegrini does manage to bring him to the London Stadium, whilst it would be a risk, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for West Ham.
