The Colombia international joined the Blues on loan over the summer under Jose Mourinho, but is already well out of contention at Stamford Bridge and appears to be set to slip further down the pecking order with Alexandre Pato’s arrival from Corinthians.
However, Falcao might have an escape route open, with Jiangsu eager to lure him to the newly emerging Super League.
Reports claim that the side that just spent £25m on Ramires want the experienced forward as they look to build a reputation both within their own nation and on a global scale.
Although Falcao, owned by Monaco, has looked a shadow of the striker that terrified defences at Porto and Atletico Madrid since his serious knee injury in 2014, he remains a well-known player and would be a leading name in Chinese football.
Chelsea have already attempted to send him back to his parent club, so a deal could perhaps be worked out between all three sides involved to see the player head to East Asia before the transfer deadline passes.
The Chinese top tier has been making headlines of late, with players such as Gervinho, Ramires, Paulinho and many others having been lured across from Europe by the vast salaries offered by the biggest clubs.
