Liverpool continue to pursue AS Monaco goal machine Radamel Falcao with the Daily Mail claiming that the Anfield side are ready to meet the Colombian's massive salary expectations.
The 28-year-old, who moved to Ligue 1 big spenders AS Monaco in a £50m deal last year, wants to leave the Stade Louis II but as yet his main suitors are unwilling to meet the principality club's price-tag.
Real Madrid are known to court the former Atletico Madrid star but having spent big on the likes of James Rodgriguez, Toni Kroos and Keylor Navas the La Liga side are not in a position to bring in another big name addition for fear of failing to adhere to UEFA's FFP (Financial Fair Play) guidelines.
AS Monaco are not willing to loan Falcao to Real Madrid but are ready to consider such a temporary move elsewhere, which could offer Brendan Rodgers hope.
Liverpool will reportedly had no problem financing the move and apparently a £200k a week wage package will not be a problem.
AS Monaco will demand £12m for a season long loan switch though Liverpool would look to negotiate on that front.
Falcao has scored goals wherever he has pitched up, netting 72 goals in 87 appearances for FC Porto before racking up 70 goals in 91 appearances for Atletico Madrid.
Last term the South American managed 11 goals in 19 fixtures before he was sidelined with a serious knee injury that ruled him out of the World Cup finals.
