English media reported extensively that Liverpool are trying the best to lure Monaco’s world class striker Radamel Falcao.
Reds manager Brendan Rodgers insisted after Liverpool’s opening day victory against Southampton that he would try to land at least one more striker to the side and plethora of reports suggesting it could be Falcao.
Liverpool want to sign the player on a season-long loan but faces tough competition from Italian giants Juventus.
Falcao is reportedly demanding a wage in the region of £200,000 per week but the encouraging side is, the player wants move out of France.
According to reports from Gazzetta dello Sport, Falcao is not keen to make a move to the Premier League, rather he would prefer a career in Italy.
Also, Falcao is ready to accept a pay cut to move elsewhere. Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has been in touch with the player’s agent and the Serie A champions are ready to offer him a €20m pay package, including fees to his agent as well.
Juventus may have to sell Fernando Llorente in order to arrange such a hefty pay package. Rodgers has other alternatives as well, like Wilfried Bony, who has been linked with the club early this summer.
