Liverpool fans impressed with claims club are tracking Ferran Torres.
Liverpool could be welcoming another Torres to Anfield, according to the reports.
Torres is one of Spain’s brightest young talents and he had a release clause in his Valencia contract of £22 million, before Valencia yesterday upped it to 100 million Euros.
Chelsea are also keen, along with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Torres, 18, starred at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup last year, along with Liverpool sensation Rhian Brewster.
Torres is an attacking player who features on the wing and he is already pushing for involvement in Valencia’s first team.
The interest from clubs clearly sparked Valencia into trying to improve Torres’ contract, as his current release clause made him a potential bargain.
Liverpool are right to be keen, but Torres will have to weigh up whether he feels he would get closer to first team football by moving to Merseyside.
The Reds have one of the most fearsome attacks in Europe already, and their own top prospects Harry Wilson and Ben Woodburn are struggling to break through.
Torres’ new deal likely puts him beyond Liverpool’s reach, but for a moment, fans were getting excited about his potential arrival.
Here is a look at how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to the rumours…
Ferran Torres to Liverpool? Immense signing if true. He is on Sancho’s level.

Had the chance to watch him live last year during the U17 World Cup.
Saw him in action against Brazil Live. I have to say he is a superb talent. Would be a great coup for us.
