Liverpool are confident of signing Radamel Falcao this summer, after opening talks with Monaco for the striker, according to the Metro.

The Colombian has been heavily linked with a move away from the French club this month, as they look to balance out their spending to comply with FIFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.

Manchester City and Real Madrid have both been linked with a move for the 28-year-old, but sources in Italy claim Liverpool have moved ahead in the race to sign him, with Brendan Rodgers desperate to secure a world class replacement for Luis Suarez.

Italian journalist Mina Rzouki says the Reds have already held positive negotiations over Falcao, and are quietly confident of persuading him to come to Anfield.

Rzouki posted on Twitter: “Meetings today & a v. good source told me Liverpool have the advantage for Falcao.” 

It’s not yet done. Falcao is between Liverpool and City but the former quite a bit in the lead to land the player. What a coup it would be.” 

The striker is understood to be available on loan with a view to a permanent transfer, which would suit Liverpool considering their level of summer spending so far.

      Tom Pepper…nobody cares what you think, not Liverpool FC, not Rodgers, not the supporters, nobody. You say mismanagement, would that be the mismanagement that took us from 7th to 2nd? You’re a typical plastic supporter that is best suited to following teams like chelsea and man utd. TOM PEPPER OUT!!!

    I totally agree with you,as much as it hurts too say it ;-(

    I don’t know why you three don’t go and sign up for the Bluenoses supporters club. I can understand Mr Jones as he has been slagging off every manager and player we’ve had since Adam was a lad on every site concerning LFC even been banned from some for intimidation and is known to the police because of it.

    @Tom Pepper. Its clear u support team from ‘Old toilet’. just trying to cause chaos amongst us great supporters. Just so u know, we will do well this season if not better than last. yes everyone is entitled to the opinions but you just don’t understand football. We almost won the league last season and you say we have not improved??? some of those players you mentioned were directly involved in our qualification for champions league, brought in by BR. Need I say more?

  7. I dnt know why rodger doesnot want to buy quality players like falcoa coz the club has the money from suarez if we are this situation we can’t qualify champions league next season

  8. Bright says:

    Whatever the argument, we need that world-class goalscorer. We can’t depend on Sturridge and Lambert to give us the goals lose to Suarez’s departure.

  9. Seamus McSpud says:

    Look folks there’s somethin a cookin!! and it’s not spuds!!
    We WILL make a big signing before end of August.
    And, It baffles me how any LFC supporter can put the boot in on Brendan Rodgers after the season we’ve just had. Shame on you!

    Where is our marque signing? What is the quality of players? Rodgers alrdy sign a lot of flop,( Aspas, alberto, Borini, Assaidi, Allen ) however, this season we will turn into liverhampton soon, with LAMbert, LALLANA , and lovren join. Why we still cnt towards the champion? why MC CAN ? We can see that the squad of Mc. Is that a lot of quality players? No. All of them are consider world-class. I still feeling weird y LFC sign a players always like that? B class players. we develop 7 players instead last summer, just 2 consider successful. The statement of buying British players are suck… WTF , u can see Arsenal squad. Now they realise they got a lot of Eng players, but its all good enough ? Carrol 35m , downing 20m , alrdy 55m . If we spend it truly, we can buy aguero, jovetic, and others are world class. We will see Chelsea N arsenal this season. A good transfer plan, and MU will sign Vidal soon. Liverhampton ? Can go all the way ? 3 new players come in alrdy suffer injury. So is that a good buy this season? Hope BR will sign a true true world class player.
