Ranieri calls for more Monaco signings

Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri has called for further reinforcements to strengthen his squad, but claims new signing Radamel Falcao will give the principality side a one-goal head start next season.

Having steered Monaco back into Ligue 1 after a two-year absence, Ranieri has seen the club's Russian billionaire owner Dmitry Rybolovlev dig into his vast resources to acquire James Rodriguez, Joao Moutinho and the prolific Falcao for an estimated €130 million.

Valenciennes defender Nicolas Isimat-Mirin, young Italian forward Gaetano Monachello, experienced Portuguese centre-back Ricardo Carvalho and exciting teenage forward Anthony Martial have also been added in an attempt to give Ranieri a side which can do more than merely compete in Ligue 1.

However, the former Chelsea and Roma boss believes it is not yet enough to compete with French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

"I hope other players are going to come. I hope we'll have a great season," he told media at his squad's pre-season training camp in Italy. "I know that a lot is expected of us, but it's not possible to draw a comparison with PSG."

Despite Ranieri's words, the arrival of Falcao from Atletico Madrid in an estimated €60 million move signalled Monaco's intent to pose a significant threat to PSG and the Ligue 1 crown they re-acquired last season.

The Italian acknowledged the Colombia international, who has scored a prodigious 47 goals in his last 60 appearances for club and country, was a major asset, saying: "With Falcao, we'll start our matches 1-0 up."

Having played alongside compatriot Rodriguez for their country in World Cup qualifying last month, Falcao is not expected to begin training with his new team-mates until just prior to their departure for their second summer camp in Austria on July 10.
