The Spaniard joined the Reds from Atletico Madrid in July 2007 and would go on to forge a reputation as one of the best forwards in the world during his three-and-a-half seasons at the club, scoring 81 goals in 142 appearances.
Torres departed Anfield for Chelsea in January 2011 and a move to AC Milan preceded a return to his boyhood club Atletico in 2015.
The 2010 World Cup winner will conclude his playing days at Japanese side Sagan Tosu.
