Barely six months after a catastrophic loan spell at Manchester United, Radamel Falcao can once again be found laboring in the Premier League.

Snapped up by Jose Mourinho in the summer, Falcao embarked on a season-long loan at champions Chelsea for a second campaign away from parent-side AS Monaco. With the potent Diego Costa needing back up, the Portuguese manager took the Colombian under his wing after Didier Drogba’s departure.

Falcao’s name has dominated recent transfer gossip however as his Chelsea career has failed to get truly into motion. Even in Costa’s absence, Loic Remy has been preferred as the second choice striker and the former Porto and Atletico Madrid forward only has one Premier League start this season.

It is this disheartening form that sees ‘El Tigre’ linked with a January move that may provoke Chelsea to terminate his loan early. According to the Mirror, Fiorentina have made an enquiry over a winter loan switch for the player.

The Florence-based side sit top of Serie A and in signing Falcao, may hope to provide the squad depth that can help bag them the Scudetto this year.

There is little doubt that Radamel Falcao can’t seem to cut it in the Premier League, even after switching Old Trafford for Stamford Bridge. Those who had anticipated Jose Mourinho could get the best out of the Colombian have been mistaken.

Unless the once world-renowned forward can finally find his shooting boots on English shores, it looks inevitable that Falcao will ditch the Premier League in order to save his crumbling career.

As long as the Colombian has his feet on British soil, his goal scoring touch appears to be sterilised. However, what will be Chelsea’s loss may prove Fiorentina’s gain as the football season rolls ever closer to the January transfer window.
