Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton feels once Fernando Torres hears the plans of the Reds prospective new owners he can be persuaded to stay.

Fears have been raised as to the Spaniards long-term future at Anfield, with off-field uncertainty casting a cloud over the club.

Torres has been one of those to see his performance levels dip in the wake of a distracting takeover saga which continues to rumble on.

"The new owners want to be winners, and Fernando Torres wants to be a winner," the Reds chairman said in the Sunday Express.

"They will be well-matched. Will Fernando want to stay when he hears what they've got to say? Absolutely."

Broughton claims those players who have already heard Henry's proposals are excited about the future and he is confident Liverpool's international stars will buy into the vision once they are made aware.

He added: "Managing director Christian Purslow has spoken to Jamie Carragher and the few players who have been left during the international break about the ideas and plans of the new owners."
