Liverpool’s Luis Garcia is set to complete his move to Atletico Madrid.

The Spaniard has been linked with a return to his former club and his agent Manuel Garcia Quillon admits a transfer should be completed within the next 24 hours.

With Liverpool hoping to sign Fernando Torres from Atletico there has been speculation that Garcia could be involved in a possible swap deal, although it is understood that the deals are not dependent upon each other.

“We are working on Luis Garcia’s permanent transfer to Atletico Madrid,” said Quillon.

“If all goes well, the deal should be completed either today or tomorrow.”

Garcia, who was one of Rafa Benitez’s first signings when he arrived at Anfield in 2004, missed the second half of last season with a serious knee injury.
