Torres staying at Anfield

Friday, July 16, 2010

New Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is adamant that Spanish striker Fernando Torres will be staying at Liverpool for next season. Torres' future has been under speculation following a poor season from Liverpool which saw them lose their Champions League spot for next year.

Torres was apart of the Spain squad that won the World Cup this summer, but he injured himself in the final which has put his ambitions of an injury free season in jeopardy. However, this will not stop Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti doing his utmost to sign him.

"I have met with Fernando. I found him to be a very pleasant man and we had a nice conversation.''

"As far as we are concerned he is a Liverpool player and we want him to remain a Liverpool player.''

"He is not for sale and we don't welcome any offers for him. We want to keep him.''

Hodgson will be desperate to keep Torres, whether he will be successful in keeping him remains to be seen. If Torres has any ambition for next season, he will leave Liverpool. Meanwhile, Liverpool have made an offer for Nice striker Loic Remy. Remy scored 16 goals for Nice last season and Liverpool are keen to land him, although West Ham, Tottenham and Arsenal are all interested.
