Benitez: Torres not for sale
Liverpool's Rafael Benitez has described Fernando Torres as priceless following his hat-trick against Hull City.
Torres terrorised the Tigers defence during Liverpool's 6-1 win at Anfield, helping himself to a clinical hat-trick.
It brought Torres' tally to eight goals in seven Barclays Premier League matches this season and was his fourth treble since his arrival from Atletico Madrid.
Benitez has revealed a couple of English clubs sounded out Liverpool about the Spanish hitman in the summer, but Benitez has warned any potential suitors they would be wasting their time in trying to prise Torres away from Anfield.
"How much is he worth?" said Benitez. "Well at least £70m, you would say.
"I'm not saying he's the best in the world because he is young and can get better, but of course he is one of the best, and he can still improve if he wants to.
"This year we had some agents acting for other English clubs who were coming to us asking about the price of Torres, with big, big figures, but we said that he's not for sale.
"I would say at this moment in time he is not for sale at any price."
