    Fernando Torres

    He has a buy out clause of 27M. He's a born finisher (like Owen), creates chances and finishes them (on his own). He's a long time LFC fan and has stated that he wishes to link up with Rafa and Xabi at Liverpool.

    I think he would be one hell of a signing.

    Any comments?? Could this be real or just end of season speculations??

    • He would be a good link up player for Kuyt or Crouch. Yes he has stated a few times that if he came to the Prem Liverpool would be his main wish as his best friend(Xabi) plays there and would find it easier to settle in because of the amount of spanish players but david Villa has recently come out and said that as well.
      And if we had to choose either of them would be happy with who ever as with Torres at Athletico he is the main man the main star, where if comes to liverpool he would'nt have that pressure as we have Stevie G and Carra, so he could just play his game.
      With Villa I do think he would be PERFECT partner for Kuyt as their game styles are simular so they would be able to read each others game better.

      • I'm sorry to say that if Villa would be the PERFECT partner to Kuyt, then we're in deep shit as Kuyt can't control, can't shoot, can't score and nevermind the 2 goals against Wigan. His workrate is Ok but apart from that he's not a Liverpool class player. Maybe next year he might improve a tad but I wouldn't expect much from him. I like the guy cause he's very down to earth but he'll probably be like all other strikers we recently had like Diouf, cisse, Baros. If I had to get a 20+ striker, I would go for Obafemi Martins at Newcastle. Anyways, Torres is one class act and with Stevie and Xabi delivering, we might be a side to reckon with..

      • personnally i would rather see carlos tervez at liverpool, i'm not convinced a good striker in spain will always make it in the premiership. examples being morientes and diego forlan, who both come a cross a good strikers in la liga !

    • Isn't it this guy who has "You'll never walk alone" written inside of his arm band?

    • Sorry, didnt i mention this geezer, like, months agao, when you buddies where tossing over Villa..........who like i said has since been on the slide..

      Do you guys ever watch any other football, besides your own team???

    • He's gone very public and said he has no desire to play in the Prem and he is staying put.

    • i would say a bit of both

      he has proberly been asked if he likes the club and said yes and rafa has admitted he is a quality player

      so even without contact between clubs you get a ''story''
