Liverpool look set to bid in £8m chase for Torres II

Liverpool fans, no doubt still recovering from the excesses of Tuesday night’s celebrations, apparently have something else to cheer about. Reports suggest that Rafa Benitez is leading the way in the chase for a young striker compared to ‘El-Nino’ himself.

Liverpool appear to be leading the chase for Real Murcia’s young striker Dani Aquino, who is also said to be interesting the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal. Although Real Madrid hold first refusal on Aquino, it is unclear as to whether Bernd Schuster plans on signing the 17-year-old. (various)

Aquino impressed at last summer’s Under-17 World Cup and is hoping to help keep his Murcia side in La Liga. Either way the lad has a bright future – but will that be at Real Madrid or at Anfield?
