The 34-year-old, who returned to Atlético in 2015 on an initial loan deal, has been waiting for his 100th LaLiga goal since hitting the net against Las Palmas in January.

And the former Spain international brought up three figures in the 3-0 win over Levante on Sunday, volleying in a superb finish from Ángel Correa's cross to complete the scoring.

Torres, the fifth Atlético player to score 100 LaLiga goals for the club, has yet to confirm his next move.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker has been linked with a switch to the Chinese Super League or MLS.
