Ferran Torres Biography, playing style, stats, idol and more

Ferran Torres García is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a forward for La Liga club Barcelona and the Spain national team. He has represented Spain internationally at various youth levels and debuted for the senior team in 2020.

Ferran Torres lit up our Tuesday when it was announced he'd signed a 5-year deal with Barcelona.

Here's everything to know about the Spanish striker.

Unique birthday

Torres was born on February 29. That means his birthday comes around just once every 4 years.

Only Mikel Balenziaga has the same birthday in the entire La Liga.

Torres was born in 2000, the same year as Sergino Dest.

Playing style

Torres like to run at defenders to force errors. He's good with the ball at his feet, as he can dribble and shoot. He enjoys playing quick counters because of his raw pace.

The former Manchester City man is considered a potent finisher.

Standing at 1.84m tall, he's been noted to be strong in aerial duels.

Simply put, Torres is maturing into a complete striker.

Best position

Torres stated in his first Barca interview that he's versatile and can play anywhere in the front three.

Indeed, he's good with both feet, which means he really can play anywhere in the attack.

He played his best game for Spain last November as a left-winger, finishing the match against Germany with a hat-trick.

It'll be up to Xavi to make the decision.

Football role model

Interestingly, Torres idolizes former Barca striker David Villa.

The youngster even patterns his game after the former Valencia icon.

Largely explains why he's such a versatile attacker.


Finally, we can say that Ferran has a fairly decent stat for 21-year-old.

The Spanish international has scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for his country since his national team debut for La Roja last September.

At club level, he was averaging nearly 0.5 goal contributions per game at Manchester City, with 16 goals and 4 assists in his 43 appearances for the Premier League outfit.

Not that outstanding at Valencia though, with 9 goals and 12 assists in 97 matches.
