Reported Liverpool target Pau Torres has the talent to play for any club in the world, Villarreal team-mate Vicente Iborra has told El Transistor after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid.

It’s not often a centre-half catches the eye in a 6-0 win.

But while he was understandably overshadowed by Alvaro Morata, Dani Olmo and hat-trick hero Ferran Torres as a ruthless Spanish side consigned Germany to their heaviest defeat since 1931 in the Nations League last week, Torres still produced the odd glimpse of top-class talent during a famous win for La Roja.

Sergio Ramos’s central defensive partner made one fine block to deny Serge Gnabry at 0-0 while showcasing the kind of pinpoint, 60-yard passes that Virgil van Dijk himself would be proud of.

90Min reports that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have identified the £45 million-rated Torres as a potential January addition as their totemic Dutchman recovers from a long-term ligament injury.

And the Villarreal-born 23-year-old did his reputation no harm with another fine display as Unai Emery’s side snatched a draw against Real Madrid, ensuring they will stay in third place for at least another week.

“We have enjoy him and help him  to give us the maximum, because he is a great player,” former Leicester man Iborra says.

“Pau is a player with a great present and a great future and, as a team-mate and friend, I wish him the best because he deserves it. He has everything to succeed, a well-furnished head and a lot of talent.

“He can go where he wants.”

Torres was asked about a move away from the Castellon coast after that Real Madrid clash but the mischievous Emery made sure to stop the conversation in it’s tracks.

“There is the question…” the former Arsenal boss sighed, butting into Torres’ post-match interview.

“He is very good here. Someday, he will leave but leave (the question) at once. Here he is very comfortable and he is from here.”
