Falcao, who set a Europa League scoring record of 17 goals in 14 games last season as Porto won the competition, is expected to tread the same path as Villas-Boas to Stamford Bridge.

Falcao said: "There is a club that I dream to play for. They are foreign but I do not want to say who it is now. The Spanish league is good, but I prefer the Premier League as there is a better atmosphere on the field.

"I never thought I would score so many goals. It has been a surprise for me and I have benefitted from the quality that we have in our team. I have matured in every respect and I am qualified to play in any big league."

The Colombia international, 25, began his career with River Plate in Argentina before moving to Portugal in the summer of 2009. He made his Champions League debut against Chelsea at the Bridge shortly afterwards and scored 25 league goals in his first season in Europe.

Although Falcao scored fewer league goals, 15, last season it was his achievements in the Europa League which caught the eye.

Falcao, valued at £27 million, is currently on international duty at the Copa America in Argentina but is expected to finalise his future once Colombia's involvement in the tournament is over.
