The Australian A-League are also thought to have shown interest in helping secure a deal with Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC both linked.

A World Cup and European championship victor with Spain, Torres made his final appearance for Atletico as a late substitute in Madrid's Europa League final win over Marseille.

Fernando Torres is set to join Japanese outfit Sagan Tosu, killing off the dreams of Rangers fans who wanted him in the Scottish Premiership.

In 2017, they finished eighth in the division but are in a relegation battle halfway through the current campaign.

"Asia has always treated me very well".

Former Spain teammate Andres Iniesta, who joined Vissel Kobe from Barcelona, will also be playing in the J-League and Torres said that meant he would already have a good friend in the competition.
