Liverpool are considering a shock move to bring Fernando Torres back to Anfield in January, according to the Daily Mail.
The Spain international is currently on a two-year loan at AC Milan from Chelsea after he was informed by the Blues manager that his services were no longer required at Stamford Bridge, following the arrival of Diego Costa, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy in the summer.
Torres has continued his poor form at Milan as he has managed just one goal from 10 games so far this season. The Serie A outfit are reportedly looking to end the striker's loan deal and allow him to return to Chelsea in the mid-season transfer window.
The 30-year-old joined the west London club from Liverpool on a £50m transfer in January 2011 and since his move to Chelsea, he has struggled to find the back of the net regularly.
Liverpool have also failed to score regularly this season as their strikers Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert have struggled up front. In addition to this, Daniel Sturridge has not featured for the Reds since August and is still out on the sidelines with multiple injuries.
Brendan Rodgers is hoping to re-sign the former Liverpool striker in January as he was one of the prolific goal scorers, during his time with the Merseyside club. The Northern Irishman is looking to sign an attacker next month and is now ready to gamble on Torres.
Any move from Liverpool in landing Torres will see them face tough competition from the Spaniard's first club Atletico Madrid. The La Liga winners are also keen on bringing him back to the Spanish capital club.
Meanwhile, Filippo Inzaghi has ruled out any possibility of Milan terminating the loan deal in January after confirming no player will leave the Italian outfit in the mid-season transfer window.
"No player has asked to be able to leave in January. Torres has returned to training after being out for a few days and is on the list, although he won't be starting," Marca quoted Inzaghi as saying.
