Radamel Falcao is open to the idea of joining Liverpool on a season-long loan deal this summer, but only if the club agree to meet his lucrative £200k-a-week wage demands.

According to the Daily Express the Colombian sits atop of a list of strikers Brendan Rodgers has compiled as he looks to adequately replace Luis Suarez, and the fact that no massive fee would be needed - as it wouldn’t be a permanent deal - only heightens his interest. Despite reports previously stating that Falcao was happy to remain at Monaco for the forthcoming season the Express today carries contrasting reports, and the 28-year-old could yet strengthening the frontline at Anfield.

Falcao at Monaco

Despite having moved to the principality only last summer from Atletico Madrid, Falcao has been hotly linked with an exit from Monaco, as his first campaign there was largely indifferent. The forward remains a top asset thanks to his reputation in front of goal, and Real Madrid have also been mentioned amongst his more illustrious suitors.

However the Spanish giants have recently handed a lengthy new deal to Karim Benzema, which perhaps indicates that they no longer harbour any intentions of paying over the odds for another frontman. This would mean Liverpool have an opportunity to move into pole position, though it will cost them.

Falcao demands

Rodgers may well be keen to get his hands on a proven goal scorer, but Falcao won’t consider a move unless £200,000-a-week is put on the table. Liverpool have never been as willing as some of their Premier League rivals to consent to paying that kind of money for one man, and there are definitely cheaper options to be found.

That being said Chelsea are also lurking with intent, as Jose Mourinho looks to acquire a world-class alternative to Diego Costa, and that could be enough to force Rodgers’ hand.
