Radamel Falcao agent in talks with Liverpool

Radamel Falcao's agent is reportedly in talks with Liverpool ahead of a potential summer switch from Monaco.

The striker is currently on loan at Manchester United, but has failed to make an impression after scoring just four goals in 23 appearances.

Louis van Gaal has the option to make Falcao's stay permanent, but reports in Spain claim that the Dutchman has informed Monaco that the Colombian will be returning to France at the end of the season.

Falcao has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Liverpool recently, and his agent Jorge Mendes is said to have made contact with the latter in order to seal a new destination for the ex-Porto and Atletico Madrid icon.

Anfield forwards Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini have been tipped to leave Merseyside, and Mendes is apparently trying to persuade Brendan Rodgers to sign Falcao on a full-time contract.
