Liverpool striker Fernando Torres does not know whether he will stay at Anfield next season, according to his agent.

Torres has been linked with moves to a host of teams, including Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City as well as a reunion with Spain international team mate David Villa at Barcelona.

And agent Jose Antonio Martin has admitted that Torres will stay in the Premier League – but not necessarily at Liverpool.

Martin said: “It is very likely that Fernando Torres will stay in the Premier League, but I cannot say that it will be with Liverpool. We are working on his future but right now you cannot guarantee that he will stay with the English club.”

“[Barcelona] is ruled out. [They] have signed David Villa and now they want to invest the money they have in other players,” he added.

Torres has gone on record to say he is pleased with the appointment of new Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson but the former Fulham gaffer will have a fight on his hands to keep the Spanish ace.

Torres has failed to fire at the World Cup yet but Chelsea and Manchester City would both be willing to pay £70 million for his services.

With debts of £472.5 million, the Merseyside club’s American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett could be tempted into selling their prized asset – as well as captain Steven Gerrard, who is interesting Real Madrid.
