Ex-Liverpool striker Fernando Torres wants to be reunited with Benitez

Fernando Torres could be set to make a return to the Premier League, according to the Mirror. However, Newcastle lead the race due to Rafa Benitez's relationship with Torres from their time at Liverpool together.

So could Rafa be the man to revive Torres' flagging fortunes and help him win back a starting spot at Atletico?

Whatever deal is eked out, Torres has made it clear that it would be a very short one. The World Cup victor is now little more than a squad rotation player at his boyhood club of Atletico Madrid and reports suggest that he desires a return to England.

Returning now to our game against Newcastle on Saturday, everyone knows they are newly-promoted but they are still a big club with several Spanish players. It was this prolific form that made Liverpool swoop for him in 2007, which was at the time was their most expensive signing in their history. Benitez was of course Torres' boss when he was at Anfield.

Liverpool fans will never forget about Fernando Torres.

Both Newcastle and Southampton are desperately looking to add a new striker to their ranks in January, having scored just 19 Premier League goals between them so far after playing 11 games each.

Torres is now having a hard time at Atletico Madrid and has been limited to only two starts so far this season. He was loaned out to Milan for the 2014/15 season but he struggled in Italy so moved back on loan to Atletico Madrid for the remainder of that season and then the season after.

Newcastle United fans will be excitedly looking ahead to a potentially dramatic January transfer window, where the Magpies could find themselves with plenty of money to spend.
