With new Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson conceding defeat in his efforts to convince Torres to stay at Anfield, it is time the Reds prepared for life without their talismanic striker.
Hodgson told in an interview that he had done whatever he could to convince Torres but has failed in his efforts as Torres has some previous issues with the Mersyside management and unless those are sorted out it is likely that Torres will leave the Reds this season.
In light of his departure, Liverpool faces a void in their attacking front. Although they have signed the talented Milan Jovanovic, he lacks the class of Liverpool's Spanish legend.
In these slides we will look into the players whom Liverpool could sign as a replacement in case Torres leaves Anfield this season for greener pastures.
