Valencia will launch a big money summer move for Chelsea’s Fernando Torres, if they are taken over by Indonesian businessman Peter Lim, according to reports from The Mirror.

The Spanish striker has struggled since making a £50m move to the Blues from domestic rivals Liverpool in 2011, with goals hard to come by in West London.

Los Che are the latest side to have shown an interest in the once prolific forward, with their prospective owner targeting marquee arrivals.

Lim is attempting to take control of the La Liga side – who have been gripped by financial uncertainty for some time – with the promise of evaporating their debt and investing in their first-team.

Torres is set to turn 30 soon, and is rumoured to have little future at the club as Jose Mourinho and Roman Abramovich target a big name hit-man to fire their side to glory.

As a result the former Kop idol will be available for around £13m, a fraction of the fee paid for him three years ago.

As well as Torres, Romelu Lukaku’s future is also in doubt.

The Everton loanee could be sold if an offer of around £22m is received.
