He's the £48 million striker who's name is on everybody's lips at the moment - and Radamel Falcao has taken time out to show just why that is by picking out three of his best ever strikes in the Europa League.

Reportedly a target for Chelsea and Manchester City amongst others, Falcao has risen to prominence thanks to his prolific goalscoring form over the past two seasons with Porto and Atletico Madrid.

Having helped Andre Villas-Boas' secure a historic quadruple with Porto in 2010/11, the Colombian forward made the move to Atletico last summer as a replacement for Manchester City-bound Sergio Aguero and has not stopped scoring since - he's record in Spain currently stands at 35 goals in 45 league appearances in Spain.

That form has of course led to speculation that he could be destined for a big move to the Premier League in either the January transfer window or at the end of the season - and will be available for £48 million, the amount stipulated in his contractual release clause.

Chelsea are said to be keen on landing him as a replacement to Fernando Torres, who could re-join his former club, while Manchester City seemingly want to add to their already impressive attacking line-up.

Both teams have been seen scouting Falcao in recent months - in fact Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini himself was present at Atletico's encounter against Malaga recently, reportedly to catch a glimpse of his would-be signing.

But luckily for Chelsea and Manchester City, Falcao has given them a helping hand, by compiling a CV of sorts to fully show off his range of talents.

The 26-year-old has picked out his three favourite ever goals in the Europa League for Goal.com, and it's fair to say his Premier League suitors will be impressed with what they see.

If somehow after all the speculation you are unaware of exactly who Radamel Falcao is and what he is about then this video will sum it all up nicely - so sit back and enjoy the man some are picking to challenge Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the title as the best player in the world.
