Published Add your comment

Liverpool appear to have moved closer to signing Spain striker Fernando Torres after his current club Atletico Madrid agreed a deal for Villarreal´s Diego Forlan.

Torres has been linked with a £27million move to Merseyside and the transfer of former Manchester United frontman Forlan looks likely to pave the way for the 23-year-old to move to Anfield.

Uruguay international Forlan, who is currently on international duty in the Copa America, has agreed a four-year deal with the Primera Liga club.
