Torres has no price - Benitez

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez claims he wouldn't part with Fernando Torres even if he was offered £70million for his star striker. The Spain hot-shot bagged a hat-trick during Saturday's 6-1 drubbing of Hull City to take his tally to eight goals in seven Premier League games this season. Torres arrived at Anfield in a £20million deal from Atletico Madrid two years ago and Benitez claims the striker is now effectively priceless. "How much is he worth?" said the Spaniard. "Well at least £70million, you would say. "I'm not saying he's the best in the world because he is young and can get better, but of course he is one of the best - and he can still improve if he wants to. "This year we had some agents acting for other English clubs who were coming to us asking about the price of Torres, with big, big figures, but we said that he's not for sale. "I would say at this moment in time he is not for sale at any price."
