Liverpool come up with a cunning plan to soften the blow of losing Fernando Torres

But will their fans fall for it?

Liverpool have found a possible way to lessen the outrage of their fans if they lose Fernando Torres in January – they want to sign Fernando Llorente Torres as his replacement.

With the rumour mill still suggested that Torres will be on his way to Barcelona, Manchester City or Chelsea, today’s speculation suggests they want to sign his near namesake from Athletic Bilbao.

OTP sincerely hopes that this is not another epic swindle from the Liverpool hierarchy. We have visions of Llorente being put on a crash diet, getting his hair straightened and being handed a ‘TORRES 9’ shirt.

‘They’ll never notice the difference!’

    I would die if they signed Llorente. Too funny.

    Fernando Torres out, Fernando Torres out, no one will notice. Ingenious really!
