The protracted transfer saga of Radamel Falcao appeared to have taken another twist today, following reports that Liverpool are interested in signing the Monaco striker.

However, the tale may now have become more knotted following Liverpool's reported interest in the man who notched 52 strikes in just 68 games for Atletico Madrid during two seasons at the Vicente Calderon.
Respected Italian football journalist Mina Rzouki appeared to reveal in a series of Twitter posts that the Merseyside club are now leading the unevenly-paced trot for Falcao.
