Fernando Torres has signed a new Liverpool contract that will keep him at Anfield until at least 2013.
Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez said: "Fernando is one of the best strikers in the game today and, at his age, can only get better.
"Every major side would want him in their team, but he has shown how much he wants to achieve success at Liverpool by committing his future to the club.
"He's a special talent but still has the hunger to improve his game."
"We've made huge progress this season and now we need to take the next step," Rafael Benitez added on the club's website.
"We are building something special here and securing such important players on long-term deals means we can move forward with confidence.
"This sends out a very positive message to everyone connected with the club."
