Fernando Torres has asked Liverpool to sign either David Villa or David Silva as they look to get their season back on track.
Torres is currently sidelined for around six weeks after undergoing surgery on his injured knee and, with Steven Gerrard also struggling for fitness this season, the striker believes the squad lacks big-name players who can change matches.
Rafael Benitez is thought to have limited transfer funds available, but Torres has now revealed that he wants to see Liverpool try to sign Villa or Silva from Valencia.
“If I could, I would take David Villa or David Silva to Liverpool as a partner in attack,” he said in the Daily Mail. “I wish they could come. It would be a great asset for our team.
“We need match-winners like Rooney or Tevez. We need footballers who break the deadlock in matches. Liverpool is losing the Premier League in home matches against average teams.”
Liverpool are reported to working on a deal to sign Kenwyne Jones from Sunderland, possibly in part exchange with Dutch striker Ryan Babel.
