And so it begins… Torres waiting for Chelsea medical

As one multi million pound striker arrives at Liverpool in the shape of Newcastle's Andy Carroll, one Anfield striker prepares to depart, with sky sports reporting Fernando Torres is awaiting permission to undergo a medical at Chelsea. A move to Stamford Bridge now appears likely despite Reds boss Kenny Dalglish claiming the club wants to keep the Spaniard on Merseyside.

Chelsea's £35million bid for the striker was rejected on Thursday, but they are thought to be preparing an improved £50million swoop.

A Torres exit appears even more likely given Liverpool have also agreed a recent deal for striker Luis Suarez of Dutch giants Ajax.

The striker has failed to hit his top form at Anfield this season, scoring only seven Premier League goals for the Reds.
