Liverpool could yet rebuff Chelsea’s advances for Torres

Does Fernando really want to leave Liverpool?Following several unsuccessful advances over the summer, Chelsea’s interest in Liverpool’s Spanish striker Fernando Torres appears to have stoked up again with the closure of the transfer window looming on Monday. It has been revealed by a Liverpool spokesman that Liverpool did receive an offer for Torres but rejected it. Although no official figure has been released, many believe that the offer was in the £35-40 million range. Chelsea have been keen to improve their attacking options to bolster their push for the Premiership and more in the second half of the season; however, it seems likely they will now have to look in a different direction.

Following Spain’s World Cup triumph, Torres returned to Merseyside keen to show his allegiance to his club, but considering Liverpool’s rocky start and Torres’ own poor form, speculation was rife as to his future with the Club. However, since the managerial reigns were handed to Kenny Dalglish, Torres has been rejuvenated, hitting top form and scoring three goals in his last four games.

It certainly seems that he has not given up on Liverpool just yet. Liverpool’s own activity in the transfer market has been well documented with an attempt to get Charlie Adams from Blackpool and selling forward Ryan Babel to German side, Hoffenheim; their success in signing Ajax striker, Luis Suarez, best known perhaps for his handball against Ghana, is perhaps an indication to Torres that he will be receiving some help up front.

In the meantime, Chelsea’s offer displays once again their competiveness and willingness to spend money in order to win.

No season is ever a lost cause when you’re backed by Abramovich’s wallet. They have been particularly active in targeting Benfica’s Brazilian defender David Luiz, as Carlo Ancelotti appears keen to inject some youth into his aging squad. Yet with the signing of Torres now seeming a dead end, one must wonder in which direction Chelsea will go next or whether Liverpool will change their mind before 2300GMT Monday night.

    Must not let Torres go. No player bigger than the club means Liverpool not Torres should decide when he leaves. He will be worth the same if not more money in the summer with a probability to move abroad rather than to our rivals. We have a better chance of 4th place with Torres in the team. Use him and sell him in the summer unless his attitude changes
