Liverpool hero calls for Colombian star

Former Liverpool forward John Aldridge wants his old club to move for Radamel Falcao after offloading Luis Suarez.

The Reds agreed to sell their star man to Barcelona recently in a deal worth £75m.

Although Brendan Rodgers has now overseen major additions over the course of the past few weeks, from the £90m spent a direct replacement for Suarez has not yet been secured.

Loic Remy was dubbed as a man to help fill the void left by the Uruguayan, but his £8.5m switch from QPR to Anfield collapsed following issues surrounding his medical.

A number of targets have been linked with moves to Merseyside, and Aldridge hopes that Rodgers opts for Monaco’s Falcao:

“I thought Remy for £8.5m was a very shrewd buy but it’s fallen through for whatever reason, so Liverpool do need another striker in my opinion should something happen,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.

“Who is out there? Falcao, they’re saying he had a horrendous season last year.

“He was a bit part of the player he was last season. If he can get back to where he was the previous season then he would be one wouldn’t he?”

Falcao only joined Monaco last year from Atletico Madrid in a deal worth around £50m, but he is understood to be open to leaving the Stade Louis II after failing to settle in his new surroundings.

The Colombian missed the back end of last season and the World Cup with injury problems, but is still considered to be one of European football’s most dangerous marksmen.
