Liverpool icon Robbie Fowler is desperate to see his old club not sell to buy this summer.
"There is obviously talk that Liverpool aren't in a position to spend much money - but when they do get someone in, you need to give that man some money," said Fowler.
"Regardless of the pull of the club you need some money to bring some players in that he wants. It's a tough one, if any manager comes in, he'll need money.
"Both (Torres and Gerrard) are world class and if the new manager wants to win leagues and cups you need players like that so whoever comes in will want to keep them.
"Players like that win you things. Admittedly you get a lot of money for them but if you do sell them it's very hard to replace them.
"Torres has been phenomenal when he has played and averages nearly a goal a game, he's up there with anyone in world football.
"You want him to play in as many league games as you can and if he plays those, he's going to score goals.
"It's important they do well in the league, the Champions League has been done recently. The majority of fans want the league over the champions league."
