Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Radamel Falcao, according to reports in France.

Le 10 Sport claims this evening that a move to Merseyside is now gathering pace, and that the Reds have convinced the player that they are the best option in the Premier League.

Significant signings

Brendan Rodgers has already made a number of significant signings this summer, with Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Rickie Lambert three of the attack-minded additions in the summer transfer window.

But, despite spending over £100million in the market already, the Liverpool boss revealed after their opening day Premier League victory that they were still looking to strengthen in the final fortnight of the window.
