Fernando Torres might be on his way back to his former club.
Liverpool are seriously considering a January move for Fernando Torres.
However, they could face competition from Atletico Madrid, the club where the Spaniard started his career.
Torres is currently on a two-year loan from Chelsea to AC Milan, but it has been widely reported in Italy that the Serie A side want to end the deal due to the strikerís lack of form and goals. He has scored just once in 10 games.
On the other hand, Liverpool striker Mario Ballotelli which is yet to score his first goal for Liverpool
might be on his way out.
Given the injury problems Diego Costa has suffered Jose Mourinho might consider taking Torres back to add depth to his squad. But that would seem unlikely.
Liverpool, who seem to be giving up on the gamble that saw them sign Mario Balotelli for £16million from Milan last summer, need to bolster their strike force.
And Torres, who was outstanding for the Reds (65 goals in 102 Premier League games) before being sold to Chelsea for £50million in 2010 could fit the bill.
Liverpool may take the 30-year-old on loan with a view to a permanent move.
Meanwhile, Balotelli could be moved on loan to Napoli in Janaury.
