Blues could make Torres move

Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that Chelsea would be interested in signing Liverpool striker Fernando Torres this summer.

Blues striker Didier Drogba backed any potential move for the £40million-rated Spain international earlier in the week and now Ancelotti has admitted his interest in the former Atletico Madrid hot-shot.

Torres has scored 72 goals during three seasons in the Premier League but reports claim he could be sold this summer amid growing financial problems at Anfield.

"It's not only Drogba," said Ancelotti."I would like to play with Torres. He's a very good player.

"But this is not an issue for now. He is a Liverpool player and is a good striker but we have two fantastic strikers and this is not for this moment."

Earlier in the week, Drogba gave his blessing for a potential summer swoop for Torres.

He said: "I have heard the talk about Torres maybe coming in and I would welcome it, of course," said the Ivory Coast striker.

"Every time there is a new player coming here it's making the club bigger and giving us a lot of strength.

"If there is a chance for him to come he will be welcome, because any help is welcome."
