Stunned is not the word to describe punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro claim Liverpool are leading the race to sign Radamel Falcao.
The Monaco forward has been linked with a move away from Ligue 1 all summer and whilst we initially thought Real Madrid would be his chosen destination, it seems that the Reds are at the front of the pack.
Now as one of our punters notes, Brendan Rodgers is looking for another top class forward but we are not sure that Falcao would pick Liverpool over his dream side Madrid, when all is said and done.
Another year at the Ligue 1 side may yet be the way forward for the Colombian international who has just returned to first team action after recovering from a serious injury to boot.
Should Falcao really be looking to leave, we think that there will be a few twists and turns in the tale yet, with Chelsea and Manchester City previously linked with the forward, not to mention Real Madrid having a say at some point.
Liverpool fans. If can’t manage to attract Alexis Sanchez, do you really think that Falcao would give you a second glance? Let us know your thoughts below.
