Chelsea transfers: Inter chief admits Fernando Torres interest
Chelsea transfers: Inter Milan are interested in signing Fernando Torres, according to general manager
Inter Milan are interested in signing Chelsea’s misfiring striker Fernando Torres, according to the Italian club’s general manager.
The 30-year-old striker has been heavily linked with a move away from the west London club in recent months after another disappointing campaign.
Torres has managed just four Premier League goals in 23 game this season and has been touted as a possible target for a host of European clubs.
And Inter general manager Marco Fassone conceded that the 2010 Champions League winners are weighing up a move for the Spaniard.
“He is one of the names that interest us, as admitted by our president Erick Thohir in recent days,” Fassone told Radio Deejay.
“Then you will discover in due time who will be the player we will focus on.”
Last week, Torres, who moved to the Blues in a club-record £50m deal from Liverpool in January 2011, declared his desire to stay at Chelsea until the end of his current contract.
“In the last month I have moved to Atletico [Madrid], Valencia, Inter [Milan] and Monaco,” Torres, whose contract expires in 2016, told the Independent.
“I have two more years left on my contract and I said on the first day that I have signed five years with Chelsea and I want to play five years with Chelsea.
“I have tried to win everything with this club and hopefully the Premier League is the next one.
“If we win the Premier League, we have the chance to play the Community Shield, that’s another one we don’t have.”
