Breaking News is emerging from BBC Sport’s Twitter page this morning –

It appears that A.C. Milan are interested in signing Fernando Torres from Chelsea. The Spaniard joined Chelsea in 2011 for a record fee of £50m from Liverpool, only to be eclipsed by yesterdays transfer of Angel Di Maria to Manchester United.

A.C. Milan vice president, Galliani told Sky Sports: “Our goal is to take a great striker.

“Fernando Torres? He is a great striker. Let’s see if he comes or someone else. We are actively working.”

It seems Torres is top of the list to replace Mario Balotelli who left to join Liverpool this weekend. Meanwhile, Torres will be hoping to move away from the Premier League after falling to third choice behind Diego Costa and Didier Drogba at Chelsea.

With a host of horrendous missed chances since arriving to Stamford Bridge, Torres will be looking for pastures new to start afresh. The 30-year-old has only managed to find the back of the net 20 times at Chelsea in 110 appearances.

Not quite the form of a £50m striker.
