• Agent: Duo want £26m Falcao

Falcao, 25, scored a record 17 goals in Porto's victorious Europa League campaign to put himself firmly in the spotlight and Real Madrid, Arsenal and Tottenham have all been linked with the Colombian.

The striker has previously maintained his commitment to Porto, but with a £26 million release clause in his contract and some of Europe's elite willing to match it, he has admitted his desire to play at the highest level.

"It would be difficult to leave Porto this summer because the leaders of the club want to support the scheme of the team and reinforce the squad so they can compete in Champions League," Falcao told talkSPORT.

"I prefer not to read the press but I know I have been linked with Real Madrid and big English clubs like Arsenal and Tottenham. In Europe there are big leagues and I am at a moment of my career when I would like to experience it."
