Torres linked with shock return to Liverpool

Liverpool are strongly considering a move for their former striker Fernando Torres, with manager Brendan Rodgers aiming to bolster his attacking options, according to the Daily Mail.

The Spaniard is currently on loan at Milan from parent club Chelsea, but there has been strong speculation in recent days stating that the Italian club want to end the deal prematurely due to Torres’ lack of form and goals. He has scored just once in 10 appearances for the club.

The move to the San Siro came about after he fell out of favour under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, as a lack of goals last season saw the Blues’ attacking options overhauled over the summer. He has been a Chelsea player since January 2011, but throughout that period of nearly four years he has largely failed to rediscover the form he showed at Liverpool.

Torres spent three and-a-half years with the Reds, scoring 65 goals in 102 Premier League games, and Rodgers reportedly hopes to bring him back in January, although another of his former clubs, Atletico Madrid, are said to be interested.

Without the injured Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool have painfully struggled for goals this season despite the signing of Mario Balotelli for £16m in the summer. The Italian is yet to score in the Premier League for the club, and is being linked with a loan move to Napoli.
