West Ham fans urge club to sign Torres

Earlier this week, Fernando Torres revealed that he would be leaving Atletico Madrid on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old has seen his first-team opportunities limited this season, and has managed just two La Liga goals during the 2017-18 campaign.

The Spaniard is not expected to hang up his boots, however, and a number of clubs have been credited with an interest in a striker that was once regarded as one of the best in European football.

A return to the Premier League has been mooted, with Torres previously turning out for Liverpool and Chelsea in the English game.

There will be no transfer fee for the striker this summer, but he would still command high wages due to his standing in the game.

West Ham United supporters that have been discussing a potential move for the centre-forward, with a number believing that Torres would be the perfect fit for the London Stadium.
