Liverpool are reportedly still interested in bringing AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao to Anfield this summer.

According to the Express, Brendan Rodgers is keen to land the Colombian striker, and the Ligue 1 club are willing to offer the striker on a season-long loan deal. The Northern Irishman admitted that he does need to strengthen, but is willing to play the waiting game, hoping the final few weeks will throw up some options.

"We have to keep looking. We certainly need something that is going to help us over the coming season. You never know what sometimes happens with a few weeks to go in the window," Rodgers said, as quoted in the Express.

The Reds boss is keen to add another striker, as he currently has only Daniel Sturridge and 32-year-old Rickie Lambert. He is yet to bring in a replacement for striker Luis Suarez, who left for Barcelona earlier in the summer.

Rodgers has been the busiest manager in England this summer completing eight signings, but has focused mainly on the midfield and defensive departments. And he is yet to bring in a top quality front man to lead the line at Anfield.

The Merseyside club have been linked with various strikers and according to recent reports, Wilfried Bony and free agent Samuel Eto'o have been frequently linked with moves to Liverpool.

Falcao, who moved to AS Monaco last summer in a £50m deal from Atletico Madrid, had his season cut short due to injury, but was impressive in the 17 league games he played for the Ligue 1 club. But, it is now believed that the striker is not happy with his life in France and is looking to move away this summer.

Apart from Liverpool, Spanish giants Real Madrid are also interested in taking the player back to Madrid and it is claimed that the striker's first preference is to move back to the Spanish capital and link up with Real.
