Liverpool Agree A Fee With Chelsea For The Sale Of Fernando Torres

Liverpool have confirmed that they have agreed a fee with Chelsea for the sale of Fernando Torres, potentially signalling an influx of players in to Anfield to replace the Spaniard.


After negotiations throughout the day the two clubs have agreed a fee, rumoured to be £50m, and Torres will travel to London to agree terms and complete a medical.

Chelsea made their first offer for the striker last Thursday which was rejected but after intense negotiations which saw Nicolas Anelka and Daniel Sturridge mentioned as make-weights in the deal but it now appears a cash only deal has been agreed.

Losing their talisman will be a disappointment for Liverpool but they have moved quickly to fill the gap left by Torres with a deal for Luis Suarez agreed from Ajax, and continuing discussions and negotiations with Newcastle for Andy Carroll and Blackpool for Charlie Adam.

The Reds agreed a fee, rumoured to be £35m, for Carroll and the striker arrived on Merseyside earlier tonight to discuss terms and complete a medical. What is less clear is whether a deal for Adam can be agreed before the transfer window shuts, the Scot has been the subject of two bids from Kenny Dalglish’s men but so far Blackpool have rejected both bids.
