Having discussed the merits of an Anfield return for the Stamford Bridge man, we now take a look at the other side of the coin.
Earlier in the week we looked at the possible benefits of a move to bring Fernando Torres back to Liverpool after his very poor year at Chelsea. Today we look at five very good reasons why such a move should not be considered by Dalglish, Comolli and the Anfield board.
1. Doesn’t fit Liverpool’s transfer policy
It seems clear that Liverpool’s new owners, and indeed boss Kenny Dalglish and director of football Damien Comolli, are planning for the long term future of the club. Though over £100m has been spent on new players in 2011, almost all those signings were players younger than Torres, only Craig Bellamy and back up keeper Doni being the exceptions.
The Merseyside club has brought in the likes of Andy Carroll, Jordan Henderson, Sebastian Coates, Jonjo Shelvey and a number of youth team players like Villyan Bijev and Raheem Sterling who it is hoped will make the grade.
Whilst the club are looking to break back into the top four they are also seemingly looking to build a new generation of talent and a move for Fernando Torres, or indeed any of his age group.
