Didier Drogba has given his blessing for Chelsea to launch a potential summer swoop on Liverpool for Fernando Torres.
Torres has been linked with a £40million move to Stamford Bridge following the end of a disappointing season for the cash-strapped Anfield club.
The Spain striker would join Drogba and Nicolas Anelka in a star-studded Blues squad next season and the Ivory Coast striker has backed any potential move for Torres.
"I have heard the talk about Torres maybe coming in and I would welcome it, of course," he said."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."
Meanwhile, Drogba, who has scored 36 goals in all competitions this season, believes it has been the best campaign of his career.
"In 2007 I scored 33 goals and 20 in the league and really it's amazing," he continued."I feel that, season after season, I'm getting better.
"I want to finish the job this year with the FA Cup final. To win the double would mean a lot to the club and to us as players."
