Liverpool have turned down an offer of between £35M and £40M for striker Fernando Torres.
A Liverpool spokesman said:
“Chelsea have made a bid for Fernando, which has been turned down. The player is not for sale.”
It is believed that Chelsea are likely to table an increased offer for the striker in the next few days to test the reds resolve.
Torres’ form has improved in recent weeks under Kenny Dalglish, with the player scoring 3 times in 4 matches.
Liverpool appear to be running out of time for both Luis Suarez and Charlie Adam, after both clubs dismissed our offers for the players as below their expected values.
