Chelsea ready to listen to transfer offers

Chelsea Striker Fernando Torres

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is happy to allow striker Fernando Torres to leave Stamford Bridge this summer if the right offer comes in, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Spaniard has failed to shine since joining the Blues for £50million from Liverpool back in 2011 and Mourinho is the latest Blues boss not to be convinced by the 29 year old.

Chelsea signed Samuel Eto’o from Anzhi on Thursday and so Torres may now be fourth choice striker in a side that may not even play a striker if last weeks’ game at Old Trafford is to go by.

Romelu Lukaku and Demba Ba are also vying for the forward spot in a team that is heavily reliant on goals from midfield from the likes of Frank Lampard, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata.

Torres was left out of the Spain squad for their World Cup qualifier next week and so his spot at next summer’s World Cup is now in doubt, with a transfer possibly his best chance of gaining first team football.

Former club Atletico Madrid are the favourites to sign the striker, using some of the money that they received from selling Falcao earlier this summer.
