Arsenal threaten Liverpool plans for Torres

AS says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has identified El Nino as the ideal replacement for Barcelona-bound Thierry Henry.

Wenger has been a long-time suitor of Torres and this summer there is a wind of change in the air at the Vicente Calderon. Indeed, it's reported the Gunners will make an opening approach today to Atletico to register formal interest in opening negotiations for the striker.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is also keen and has been informed a cash offer of £22 million will land Torres.
