The Colombia international continues to be heavily linked with a big-money move to Chelsea, with reports suggesting that a deal could be done in the January transfer window.

A prolific strike rate has brought Falcao to the attention of Europe's top clubs, with the 26-year-old having proven himself in South America, Portugal and Spain.

It is considered to be only a matter of time before he embarks on another new challenge, and Falcao admits a switch to the Premier League would appeal to him.

He told The Times: "England? One day, I could go.

"It is a game I have watched for a long time and one day I would like to sample it.

"I used to watch it on television when I was a kid. Players like Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, (Gianfranco) Zola. But the one I supported was (Faustino) Asprilla, when he was at Newcastle.

"I think I could adapt to England. I think I could score goals."
