Liverpool are in the process of finalising a bid to take Fernando Torres back to Anfield in a shock January transfer.
The Spaniard is currently in the midst of a two-year loan spell with AC Milan but things aren't going to plan in Italy. He's managed to score just once and hasn't been selected for a league game since mid-November.
That has prompted speculation that he could return to Chelsea, something boss Jose Mourinho has subsequently ruled out. However it seems as though a return to the Premier League could be possible - but with Liverpool instead.
The Daily Star claim that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is finalising a swoop to take the 30-year-old back to Anfield in an attempt to bolster his faltering forward line. Daniel Sturridge has been injured for much of the season while Mario Balotelli has failed to settle since his £16 million summer switch.
Torres left Liverpool for Chelsea in 2011 for a fee of £50 million but never produced his best form at Stamford Bridge.

Of course it would be a huge gamble for Rodgers to take back Torres when he hasn't produced the goods for so long, plus the Anfield faithful are unlikely to impressed by the fact that the former Swansea boss is said to be willing to pay around £10 million in the January window.
However having scored 82 goals in 142 appearances for Liverpool, Rodgers will be hoping he can coax similar form from the Spaniard.
