Rafael Benitez believes he is on the brink of the major signings, including Atletico Madrid´s Fernando Torres, that he needs to boost Liverpool´s squad ahead of the new Barclays Premier League season.

The Anfield chief was guarded on the belief that Liverpool and Atletico had struck a deal in principle to bring striker Torres to Merseyside, but sources close to the club insist that only personal terms with the Spanish international now need to be concluded when he returns from holiday next week.

Although the Madrid club officially played down talk of an imminent move, a spokesman insisted no deal had been agreed "but things might change," privately they have accepted the 23-year-old wants to leave - and Benitez did nothing to deny a deal is close when he said: "All I can say is Fernando Torres is one of the players we have looked at."
