The 33 year-old's representatives have reportedly made both Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez and Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino aware that he is interested in returning to the Premier League - and hoping that one of them will make an apporach for him.

The Evening Chronicle claim Newcastle are due a "sizeable chunk" of the centralised prize pot in England's top tier, and that is expected to be enough to fund Benitez's transfer dealings in the winter window.

Manchester United attacker Juan Mata reveals that he is looking forward to seeing Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez on Saturday afternoon.

But so, it says, are Southampton, who are also in the frame to strike a short-term deal for the one-time Chelsea striker.

Torres has fallen down the pecking order at Atletico Madrid this season and will likely slip further down in January after Diego Costa can play for the club.
