The reigning Premier League and FA Cup champions tabled an offer in the region of Ã‚Â£35m-Ã‚Â£40m for the Spain international but Liverpool swiftly rejected the bid and insisted Torres is not for sale at any price.
Ancelotti refused to comment when quizzed about the possibility of Torres joining Chelsea but did reveal that the Blues “are trying to do everything they can to improve the squad”.
The 51-year-old added: “I don’t want to speak about this, you will have to ask the club. He is not my player and I have to have respect for Liverpool. I don’t like to speak about this.”
Sky Sports are reporting that Torres is “open” to a move to Chelsea and that the Spaniard has urged the club’s owners to consider offers from the Londoners.
