Report: Liverpool enquire about Radamel Falcao

Liverpool are said to be interested in on-loan Manchester United forward Radamel Falcao.

According to the Sunday Times, Liverpool are among the clubs to have enquired about Colombian international Radamel Falcao.

The 28-year-old is currently on loan at Manchester United from AS Monaco, but he has struggled for game-time and form since arriving in the summer, netting just three goals in 14 appearances for Louis van Gaal’s side.

The Times claims Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City have all enquired about the availability of the forward, who has scored 194 club goals to date, including 70 in just 90 games for Atletico Madrid and 72 in 87 appearances for FC Porto.

Falcao has been affected by injuries this season, and while some have questioned his absence from the match-day squad when United lost to Southampton earlier this month, he had actually started the previous four league games, scoring two and setting up one in that time.

Liverpool are in desperate need of a quality striker having seen summer signings Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert fail to replicate their best form thus far.

While the Reds are on a fine mini run the absence of Daniel Sturridge through injury leaves them light-weight in attack, and while the Colombian is unlikely to be available until next season, if he did ultimately arrive it would immediately rectify the issues Liverpool had had up front since the sale of Luis Suarez.
