Fernando Torres has urged Chelsea to sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona this summer.

The 27-year-old’s future has been a source of relentless speculation in recent days following reports that Barca are willing to cash in on the former Arsenal captain.

We know him well, he was one of the best players in the Premier League

Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been touted as possible destinations for the playmaker.

And Fabregas’ Spain team-mate Torres would love to see the west London club secure the midfielder’s services for next season.

“He is a kind of player that Chelsea don’t have at the moment,” Torres told Movistar.

“Great players are always great signings. We know him well, he was one of the best players in the Premier League while playing for Arsenal and is a player who brings a lot to the team.

“He is a player who brings ball control and goals. If he feels important, if he feels like a leader he proved at Arsenal that can lead a squad.”

Fàbregas, who moved back to Camp Nou from Arsenal in 2011, scored eight goals and made 13 assists in 36 La Liga games for Barcelona this season.
