New Delhi: Suddenly, Fernando Torres has become a desired target for some of the top clubs in Europe. Currently, on loan at AC Milan from Chelsea, the Spaniard striker could either make a return to Atletico Madrid, or Liverpool this January transfer window.
According to reports, Spanish champions are ready to welcome back one of their most favourite players, who can certainly fill the void left after the departure of Diego Costa. Atletico president Enrique Cerezo was even quoted saying by Marca, “There's no Torres deal, but that doesn't mean there won't be one.”
The 30-year-old honed his skills at the youth academy of Atletico before becoming one of the top strikers in the world. After playing more than six years for the Madrid club, he moved to England to play for Liverpool in a high-profile transfer in 2007. That's where his career took a definitive shape, scoring freely and at will.
And now, Liverpool are also willing to welcome him back at Anfield. The English club has failed to repeat their last season's form and are without a known striker in the absence of Daniel Sturridge, and also with the failure of Mario Balotelli.
In all probability, AC Milan will cancel the the 30-year-old's two-year loan-agreement with Chelsea in January and Blues are also reportedly ready to release him on a free transfer or for a minimal fee.
