The Reds are hoping to pounce for the Colombian international as he looks unlikely to make his current loan move at United into a permanent one after a highly disappointing season in the Premier League.
Despite previously being regarded as one of the best in the world in his position, Falcao has only scored four times in English football so far, though, according to claims made by the Metro, Liverpool would be willing to gamble on him this summer.
With the likes of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert struggling to make an impact at Anfield, Brendan Rodgers could still do with a big-name signing to replace the impact of Luis Suarez upfront, with the 31-goal Uruguayan striker leaving Liverpool for Barcelona in last summer’s transfer market.
