Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao is a target of Chinese side Jiangsu Suning, according to the Evening Standard.
The Colombian, currently on loan from Monaco, is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and could complete a move away before the Chinese transfer window shuts on February 26.
His transfer would see Loic Remy likely stay in west London amidst Chelsea's chase of the FA Cup and Champions League.

Monaco are reportedly happy to allow Falcao to move on loan again but only if his £135,000-per-week wages are paid for in full, which is unlikely to put off cach-strapped Jiangsu.
The 30-year-old has scored just once for Chelsea this season, during a 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace in August, and seen his Champions League squad place lost to recent arrival Alexandre Pato.
A deal appears all-the-more likely given that Chelsea and Jiangsu have already done business this year, after Ramires completed a £25 million move to the Chinese outfit.
Any reported move for Remy will likely be scuppered should Falcao leave, with the Frenchman a target of several clubs and needed at Stamford Bridge as Diego Costa's back up.
The Brazilian broke his nose in training on Thursday but is expected to play against Newcastle on Saturday wearing a protective mask.
The Blues will be hoping for three points against the Magpies amidst their bid to continue their unbeaten run under interim manager Guus Hiddink.
