The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Ferran Torres has signed a new long-term contract with Valencia….
Liverpool and Chelsea may need to pay £88m to sign Ferran Torres after the winger signed a new long-term contract with Valencia, according to the Daily Mail.
Torres joined the Valencia youth academy as a child and has progressed through the ranks to become one of the most highly-rated teenagers in Spanish football.
The youngster is now a firm fixture in the first team squad having made 19 appearances so far this campaign while he’s also making his mark at international level after representing the Spanish U19s.
Torres – who only turned 18 in February – has caught the attention of several top European clubs with the Daily Mail claiming that Liverpool, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all expressed an interest.
Widespread reports over the weekend suggested that the Premier League duo were hoping to lure Torres to England this summer and the Daily Mail say they’ve been keeping a close eye on him this past year.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to further strengthen his squad this summer and Torres would have offered support in attack behind the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane if he had moved to Anfield.
Chelsea are always on the look out for talented young players and the Blues could be eyeing Torres amid on-going doubts surrounding the future of Willian at Stamford Bridge.
However, the Premier League duo have been dealt a major blow as Torres has signed a new long-term contract with Valencia that ties him to the La Liga outfit until 2021.
The Daily Mail claim the winger penned the new contract this afternoon and the new deal now includes a release clause worth a staggering £88m.
So it looks like Liverpool or Chelsea will have to be prepared to dig deep if they want to sign the highly-rated Spaniard this summer but I can’t see either club being willing to pay that kind of money for the teenager.
