Spanish giants Barcelona are ready to ramp up their pursuit of Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

The Catalan club are believed to prepared to part with £70million for the Spain international and partner him up with their new signing David Villa who they secured from Valencia for £34m.

The pair now each other very well as they play up front together for the Spain national team and Barcelona see it as a perfect chance to bring two strikers familiar with each other together.

26-year old Torres was frustrated this season at Anfield and has called on the club to bring in quality players so if that is not achieved, he could very well be on his way back home.
