Former Liverpool striker Fernando Torres is hoping to return to the Premier League before he hangs up his boots, with Newcastle and Southampton his most likely destinations.

Torres' time in England started brightly but fizzled out after a goal shy three years with Chelsea.

Torres made 45 appearances for Atletico last season, scoring 10 goals, but has seemingly slipped down the pecking order, failing to score a single goal in his 10 appearances this season.

Meanwhile, Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino was part of Benitez's coaching staff at Liverpool and could also be interested in a reunion with Torres.

The Mirror are reporting that Torres' representatives have let the Atletico hierarchy know of his desire to leave, potentially on loan, in the January window.
