Joe Cole admits he is relishing the prospect of linking up with Fernando Torres at Liverpool.
England star Cole claims playing with the likes of Torres played a major part in his decision to join Liverpool ahead of other clubs on a free transfer.
Cole is a huge admirer of Torres and he is hoping to provide the Spaniard with the ammunition to fire Liverpool to success.
"One of the main reasons I came to Liverpool was because I wanted to play with these great players and I'm going to work every day to make Fernando as many chances as I can," Cole said.
"I've been watching the way he plays ever since he came to the club and, the season before last, he was the best striker in the world, without a shadow of a doubt.
"I love playing with strikers who play on the shoulder of the last defender. The best striker I played with at Chelsea was (Hernan) Crespo; his movement was absolutely unbelievable.
"I had a good relationship with him and hopefully I will be able to have that kind of relationship with Fernando. My job is to make chances for the front men and I can't wait to play alongside him."
