Torres again talks up Liverpool move for Villa

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has again spoken of his hope that Valencia ace David Villa will join him at Anfield.

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has again spoken of his hope that Valencia ace David Villa will join him at Anfield.

He said: "The important thing is we're getting closer to the title. It's been frustrating for me because three years without a trophy for Liverpool is too long. The next one is coming, though – I'm sure of it. I know Rafa is working hard to bring in good players but I'm pretty sure David Villa will be too expensive for us.

"He is an outstanding striker and if Liverpool could sign anyone, I'd ask for him. He's been in sensational form this season. But, to be honest, we have Steven Gerrard playing behind the striker and he scores 20 goals a season, so we don't really need another forward. We just need to keep our best players."
