The agent of Radamel Falcao has reportedly made contact with Liverpool over a possible switch to Anfield for the Colombian striker.

Currently on loan at Old Trafford, an extremely disappointing return of just four goals all season means Manchester United are not expected to take up the option to sign the striker permanently from Monaco. A fee of £43.2m was agreed at the start of his loan spell.

That's left Falcao seeking a new club and it appears as though his agent, Jorge Mendes, has already begun working on a solution.

Despite his poor season which continued with a blank against Chelsea at the weekend, Liverpool are thought to be keen on bringing him to Merseyside.

With Raheem Sterling's future uncertain, Daniel Sturridge's injury concerns ongoing, Rickie Lambert making no impact and Mario Balotelli's struggles, the Reds are in desperate need of reinforcements in the summer and believe Falcao could be the answer.

According to the report in The Express, Mendes will try to negotiate a permanent transfer rather than another loan for his client.
