Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is keen to tie up star pair Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres to new contracts.

The Daily Mail says with just two years left on his current agreement, top earner Gerrard can expect a modest increase in his £100,000-a-week salary to keep him at Anfield into his thirties, while Torres will land a revised package after alerting Europe's top clubs with a stunning performance against Real Madrid.

The £21m former Atletico Madrid striker, who arrived on a six-year deal worth £70,000 a week in 2007, is on course for a 12-month extension and weekly pay rise to £90,000.
