Liverpool target Ferran Torres has been tipped to be a perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp’s system if he moves to Anfield.
The 20-year-old winger has established himself as a key first team figure at Valencia over the past couple of seasons, and with his contract expiring next summer, appears to be in line for a big move.
Liverpool are among those in contention for the Spaniard’s signature, while Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund could pose a threat in the race to sign him.
However, the Anfield club seem to be the perfect fit for Torres, according to former Valencia midfielder and sporting director Fernando.
“Ferran Torres is a great player. He has emerged very young and that is proof of his maturity,” he told Tribal Football.
“He’s skillful, he’s great one-on-one, he’s quick and he even scores goals.
“He also plays on the inside, takes advantage of spaces and can be part of a team that plays on the counter-attack or a dominant team in terms of possession.
“He can perform well in any team and in any league. In England too, of course, at Liverpool or any other team. Klopp’s system fits him and he is mentally very strong to cope with pressure and demands.”
Torres is expected to be a more cost-effective attacking target than the likes of Jadon Sancho, although in something of a merry-go-round, Dortmund are also interested in him as a replacement if they sell the Englishman.
Another of Liverpool’s attacking targets, Timo Werner, is also set to be on the move this summer – but it may not be to Anfield.
One respected journalist has cast doubt on the chances of the German striker joining the Reds, with two Italian clubs said to be in talks with the RB Leipzig star.
