The Lowdown: Torres shines for club and country
Torres is not only shining for Villarreal, however, and he is expected to start for Spain at the upcoming 2022 World Cup, further highlighting his ability.
Now, it looks as though Unai Emery could be interested in acquiring his former player at Villa.
The Latest: Villa eyeing up move
According to Football Insider, the Villans’ new manager is ‘keen’ on bringing in Torres, although it isn’t specified if a January or summer move is wanted.
The Verdict: Potentially outstanding signing
Should Villa move for Conor Gallagher?
If Villa were able to get a deal over the line for the Villarreal man, it could transform their defence and also act as a major statement of intent by Emery, considering he is good enough to move to Champions League-playing clubs.
The fact that the pair have already worked together certainly bodes well and increases the likelihood of the transfer happening – whether or not other interest emerges in Torres could end up being pivotal.
