Liverpool target Radamel Falcao could be heading to Italy in the form of a loan move to champions Juventus.
Reports in the Mirror have suggested that Juventus have enquired about taking the former Porto striker, who only signed for Monaco for £50 million last summer, to Turin for the season.
Liverpool made a similar enquiry around a fortnight ago but were rumoured to be informed that the Columbian was on his way somewhere else. Juve's general director Giuseppe Marotta has apparently had discussions with the player's agent and the french club regarding the deal
Liverpool were rather sensationally linked with a move for the striker, despite already spending nearly £100 million on new players following the departure of Luis Suarez.
They were rumoured to of been rebuffed in their attempts, but will still remain alert to the situation.
Deal not off
Despite the audacity on Liverpool's behalf to bring in the striker, they will not simply give up on the offer.
However, with a wage packet rumoured to be in the region of £200,000 a week, it remains to be seen if Liverpool, or indeed the player himself will sign on the dotted line.
