Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks is adamant striker Fernando Torres will not be leaving Anfield.
Newspaper reports over the weekend suggested Chelsea would bid up to £50million for the 24-goal Premier League striker.
The Spaniard made a seamless transition to the Premier League following his transfer from Atletico Madrid, scoring 33 goals in all competitions his first season in England.
His efforts earned him the runner-up spot in the Footballer of the Year award behind Cristiano Ronaldo and he has become one of the most coveted forwards in the game.
However, Hicks insists the Reds would never contemplate selling Torres and told the Daily Telegraph: ``We would never consider it.'
