    Liverpool insist Fernando Torres will not be leaving Anfield

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'>Liverpool have dismissed claims that Fernando Torres could be tempted away from Anfield by a massive bid from new Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari.

    The 24-year-old Spain striker was at the centre of speculation that he was a top target for Scolari, along with AC Milan's Brazil superstar Kaka.

    But Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry told BBC Sport: "Fernando Torres is just not for sale to anyone.

    "It is as simple as that, really - he is not going anywhere."

    Torres took the Premier League by storm last season, scoring 33 goals after his move to Liverpool from his boyhood club Atletico Madrid.

    And he has already delivered an impressive performance for Spain in their 4-1 win against Russia in their opening game of Euro 2008.

    Scolari has been handed a huge transfer budget by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, and Torres was among a number of names listed as players he will attempt to sign once he arrives at Stamford Bridge on 1 July.

    But Parry has made it clear even Abramovich's millions will not prise Torres away from Liverpool after only one season on Merseyside.</div>
