Torres tells Rafa to get Villa

16 June 2009 09:46
Fernando Torres believes Liverpool should do all they can this summer to land Valencia frontman David Villa. The Spanish star feels his international team-mate would be an ideal acquisition for the ambitious Reds. The financial troubles which have hit the headlines of late could make a move impossible, with uncertainty surrounding how much funding will be made available to Rafa Benitez during the transfer window. With Primera Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona also believed to be in the market for Villa, Liverpool would face a tough task to bring the highly-rated striker to England. However, Torres refuses to accept that a deal would be impossible and has urged Benitez to snap up Villa should the opportunity present itself. "Rafa Benitez makes the signings and I'm sure those who come will improve us," Torres said in the Daily Star. "If it was me I would bring David Villa. But that may not be possible." Torres has struck up an almost telepathic understanding with Villa at international level, with the duo now considered by many to be the world's most lethal strike force. That tag may be slightly exaggerated, but Torres admits the pair are among the best in the business. "We play well together and link up so well," he added. "It's a pleasure to play with him. "I don't know if we are the best partnership in the world but we are European champions and that is almost the same."
