Liverpool plot Fernando Torres move

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is eyeing up a move for the club's former striker Fernando Torres, reports the Daily Star.

It has been suggested that Torres, who is currently out on loan at Serie A side AC Milan is set to return to parent club Chelsea in the January transfer window as the Italian outfit are ready to terminate the deal after the player's struggles this season. 

A Premier League return for the Spaniard, then, could see him make the move back to Anfield, with the same report claiming that Rodgers is ready to swoop for the club's former hero. 

Big money 

Torres, of course, departed Merseyside in 2009 for a then British record £50 million, but he could sensationally return to the club for free as it has been reported that Chelsea would be willing to get him off their books for nothing. 

It's not exactly surprising that the Reds are ready to bring the player back to the club, with the side struggling for goals this term. After selling Luis Suarez to Barcelona in the last transfer window, the likes of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have failed to make an impact under the Rodgers regime. 

England international, Daniel Sturridge, meanwhile, has endured a torrid time this season because of injury and won't return until after the New Year. 

Striker options 

Torres, then, would certainly add to the club's options in attack, but it remains to be sen as to whether he will be able to find his best form again after such a long period of struggles. 

It would certainly make quite the story if Torres moved back to the Anfield club, and it will be interesting to see whether anything comes of this latest rumour. 

The question is, Liverpool fans: Do you want Fernando Torres to return to your club? Have your say in the comments section below!
