Serie A giants Inter Milan are ready to end Radamel Falcao's horrifying two-year spell in the Premier League and bring him to Italy, according to talkSPORT.

Manager Roberto Mancini is aware of the Columbian forward's calibre and despite his Manchester United and Chelsea failures believes can still regain his goalscoring form playing for the San Siro outfit.

Ranked amongst the top strikers in the world just two seasons ago, Falcao has failed to fulfil his potential whilst in England.

Currently on loan at Chelsea, it is believed the Blues will not be inclined to extend his stay beyond this season, which could prove to be an advantage for his parent club Monaco, as they themselves want to land Mauro Icardi from Milan.

Although Icardi had a sensational 2014/15 season, boasting a record of 22 goals in 36 games, he has largely struggled this term scoring just three goals in nine appearances.

As a result, Mancini could use Icardi in a potential swap deal to lure Falcao from the principality.

News of the Argentine set to join the French club would come as a huge blow to Premier League duo Chelsea and Liverpool, both of whom interested in the striker, as per Express reports.

Chelsea have their own issues this year in the goalscoring department, relying heavily on Diego Costa, with Falcao and Loic Remy below par, while none amongst Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Ings and Divock Origi have impressed Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

The 29-year-old Colombian earns £145,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge but may have take a pay cut for a permanent move to the Italian side.
