#4 Fernando Torres
Fernando Torres was signed in July 2007 for a then-Liverpool record fee of £20 million from Atlético Madrid. The striker made an instant impact at the club and scored his first league goal on his Anfield debut in a 1-1 draw against Chelsea. He went to score 33 goals in all competitions in his debut season at Liverpool. In doing so, he became the first Liverpool player since Robbie Fowler to score more than 20 goals in the league in a season.
He formed a formidable partnership with Steven Gerrard as Liverpool finished second in the league in the following season. Torres scored 81 goals from 142 appearances for Liverpool before leaving for Chelsea for a British transfer record fee of £50 million.Published 18 Mar 2014, 15:08 IST
