Liverpool offered €22.8m striker plus cash as part of Torres exit deal

Juventus are reportedly ready to offer Liverpool a player-plus-cash offer for Spanish striker Fernando Torres.

Bayern Munich and Inter Milan are also thought to be interested in the Liverpool striker, but reports in Italy now claim that the bianconeri will make the first move in their efforts to land the Anfield hero.

New Reds manager Kenny Dalglish has expressed his desire to get the best out of Torres whilst he's in charge of the club, but the player's poor form has led to speculation that he could make a Liverpool exit, potentially in January.

Italian site Calciomercato claims that the Serie 'A' outfit are keen to provide Luca Toni with a new striker partner at the Stadio Olimpico, but are unwilling to meet the valuation placed on the player by the Merseysiders.

It is then claimed that Amauri will be offered in a part-exchange deal that will also see Liverpool receive a fee of around €30 million.

Brazilian-born Amauri joined Parma in 2000 before permanent stints at Chievo and Palermo. Juventus signed the player for €22.8 million in 2008, and the player's improvements were rewarded with an Italy cap last year.

The 30-year-old has struggled this season, but Liverpool have been linked in previous weeks and the Italian giants have sensed an opportunity to make an offer that may be seen as acceptable by the Barclays Premier League outfit.

A striker signing is believed to be the priority for Dalglish, who has been promised money to spend by new Liverpool owners NESV.

However, the cash received from selling Torres could be heavily invested in other core positions, while Amauri could solve the forward problem currently engulfing Liverpool.
