Hailing from a Valencian province, Torres has played for the club since he was six. Progressing through the youth ranks, he made his senior debut in 2017, becoming the first player born in the 2000s to appear in a La Liga game.

The now 20-year-old has quickly become a key player for Los Ches and will depart having played over a century of games for the club, contributing six goals and seven assists in all competitions during the recently concluded 2019/20 campaign.

He’s also won both the Under-17 and Under-19 European Championships for Spain, and is on the verge of being picked for the senior team due to his great form.

What Kind of Player is He?

A fantastic dribbler of the ball, Torres is an old-school winger who loves to get past his opponent on the byline. He loves to get onto the ball and take the game on, and is ranked in the top 15 La Liga players for total dribbles made during this season.

He’ll also drift centrally to become a greater attacking threat, and is unafraid of testing the goalkeeper whenever he’s close to goal. Only three of his teammates have had more shots for Valencia during this campaign than he has, while three of his four league goals have come from the penalty area.

He’s not one who will waste possession either, having completed 78.7% of his passes in all competitions. On the defensive end, he’s within the top 20 of wingers in successful tackles, showcasing he’s willing to work hard behind the ball.

Overall, he’s a highly talented young player who can become a more consistent and well-rounded attacking player under Guardiola’s guidance.
