Javier Mascherano: Chelsea striker target is one of the best in the world


Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano says Chelsea target Radamel Falcao is one of the best strikers in the world.

The former Atletico Madrid and Manchester United man is one of Chelsea's main targets ahead of next month's transfer window and the 31-year-old believes that the Colombian will soon rediscover the same form that made him one of Europe's best strikers.

"I have not only played against Radamel Falcao, but also in the same team as him with River Plate. I know him very well," Mascherano is quoted as saying by Express Sport.

"Obviously, he is a player with a a very important role. He is still missing some continuity after a very serious injury.

"The most important thing is to play a lot of minutes and, for different circumstances, he could not do that at his club even though Falcao has demonstrated that he is one of the best you can find at a worldwide level.

"It is a matter of time. I have no doubt that at some point, the best Falcao will show."
