In January 2011, Liverpool hero Fernando Torres left the club to join rivals Chelsea in a £50 million deal. He had submitted an official transfer request to force through a move to the Stamford Bridge club, and departed in a swirl of controversy and anger from the fans who had worshipped him for so long. Torres has struggled since the move to London, having made 35 appearances but scoring just five goals.
In recent days, the transfer rumour world has been set alight with news that Torres might be on his way out.
Multiple sources, as well as Bleacher Report correspondent Eamonn Quinn, have reported that Chelsea's manager, Andre Villas-Boas, is set to cut the club's losses and let Torres go for a possible bargain price of £20 million.
This has inevitably sparked a debate about whether or not Liverpool should buy him back. Here are five reasons why they should.
