A nightmare run for Graham Potter and Chelsea has highlighted the issues in the team, one of those being the lack of consistent firepower up front. The action in the January transfer window has already started for Chelsea, with the acquisition of Datro Fofana from Molde.
However, this action shouldn’t make a move back to England and to Chelsea any less likely for Torres. Todd Boehly seems to want to make a big statement with his first season as owner of Chelsea, with The Blues linked to many different names across Europe.
Finding the back of the net has been a difficult task for Chelsea so far this season, with their top scorer being Raheem Sterling with only six goals in 21 games, followed by Havertz on five in 22 games and Mason Mount on three goals in 23 games.
The addition of a somewhat proven Premier League winger may be what Chelsea need, especially when the source of all of their main crossing ability, Reece James and Ben Chilwell are still injured.
Torres is priced at 20/1 to make the switch from the Nou Camp to Stamford Bridge.
