Liverpool's Luis Garcia looks set to complete a move to Atletico Madrid in the next 24 hours.

The Spaniard has been linked with a return to his former club and his agent Manuel Garcia Quillon claims a transfer is imminent.

Liverpool are hoping to sign Fernando Torres from Atletico and there has been speculation that Garcia could be involved in a possible swap deal.

And with Garcia expected to join Atletico by Tuesday at the latest, Torres could also be on the verge of a move in the opposite direction.

"We are working on Luis Garcia's permanent transfer to Atletico Madrid," said Quillon.

"If all goes well, the deal should be completed either today or tomorrow."

Garcia, who has been at Anfield since 2004, was sidelined for the second half of last season with a serious knee injury.
