Liverpool prepare £12m Radamel Falcao loan move?

Liverpool reportedly line up an ambitious loan move for Monaco's Colombian striker Radamel Falcao.

Liverpool are reportedly preparing an ambitious loan move for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to add another marksman to his ranks before the September 1 transfer deadline, and the Colombian international fits the bill.

The Anfield side feel that the high-profile nature of Falcao would mark him out as an ideal replacement for Luis Suarez, who joined Barcelona last month for around £75m.

According to Radio RMC, Liverpool are ready to offer the Ligue 1 side £12m to allow them to take the striker on a short-term deal for the season, and the Anfield club are keen to insert a £31m release clause into any potential deal.

Liverpool have spent over £100m so far this summer, but have yet to add a new forward to their ranks since Suarez left for the La Liga giants.

A deal to land Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy for around £8.5m was cancelled at the 11th hour amid reports that the France international had failed his medical.
