London, Jan.19 (ANI): Liverpool coach Rafa Benitez has reportedly been told by striker Fernando Torres to buy a top Spanish striker, either David Villa or David Silva, to improve the team's performance.

According to The Sun, Torres has made it clear he would prefer Benitez to go for his Spain team-mates David Villa or David Silva from Valencia.

Torres said: "If I could, I would take David Villa or David Silva to Liverpool as a partner in attack. I wish they could come. It would be a great asset for our team. We need match-winners like Rooney or Tevez. We need footballers who break the deadlock in matches. Liverpool is losing the Premier League in home games against average teams."

Villa, 28, was top scorer at Euro 2008 and is rated at 40 million pounds, while Silva is priced around 15 million pounds.

Torres, out for six weeks after knee surgery last Saturday, makes his appeal in a new book about him called An Intimate Portrait of the Kid who Became King. (ANI)
