Click the arrow to see the latest on other reported Liverpool striker targets – Brendan Rodgers has admitted Liverpool are still in the marker for a striker and the Reds have been linked with some of the most lethal finishers on the continent. There is a glimmer of hope a deal for Falcao – yes, Falcao! – can be done, according to the Mirror.
