There are a number of reports filtering out on Twitter and Fans Forums that Fernando Torres has, or is about to, hand in an official transfer request at Liverpool.

Dan Walker of the BBC says, for example: "It seems Torres has told #LFC he wants to leave in this window. Big fight to hold on to one of the world's best."

Oliver Kay at The Times said: "It has been a season of false alarms (Rooney, Tevez), but it's clear that #LFC face a very serious fight to keep Torres."

The weight of the evidence seems to suggest that Torres may well be at either Chelsea or Manchester City by the start of February.

So what many thought would be an uneventful January has turned into the mother of all transfer windows.
