Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has urged Brendan Rodgers not to re-sign Fernando Torres in January.

The Spain international is currently on a two-year loan at AC Milan from Chelsea. He has just managed one goal so far this season and the Italian outfit are looking to end the loan deal next month.

The Merseyside club lack quality in the attacking division and Liverpool are reportedly interested in bringing Torres back to Anfield. The La Liga winners Atletico Madrid are also in the frame for the 30-year-old's services.

However, the former Reds defender believes Torres' best days were over a few years ago. Carragher believes Liverpool should bring in a player, and had earlier advised Rodgers to sign Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony.

"I wouldn't like to see [Fernando Torres return], if I'm being totally honest. If Liverpool bring a striker in you want a young, fresh, and energetic young fellow who is looking to make a name for himself," Carragher told talkSPORT.

"Fernando Torres has had an unbelievable career with the trophies that he has won, but I think we saw the best of him at Anfield and that was quite a few years ago now."

"It's been unfortunate for the lad, the way his career has gone since then. He's still picked up plenty of trophies with Chelsea and Spain."

"With that move to Milan you're thinking a slower paced game would suit him a bit more now, because of the problems he's had with injuries, but it looks straight away that AC Milan are keen to offload him," the Anfiled favourite concluded.

Meanwhile, Liverpool were forced to come from behind to settle for a draw with Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday. Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring for the Reds, while Mathieu Debuchy equalised after a minute for the Gunners just before the break.

Olivier Giroud put Arsenal ahead for the first time early in the second half, before Martin Skrtel's late header helped the Reds avoid a defeat. The latest result has seen Liverpool move to the top half of the table – with 22 points in 10<sup>th spot and are nine points behind fourth place West Ham United.
