San Siro side target Stamford Bridge striker.

Check in to Manchester City vs Chelsea

Spanish source AS claim that Inter Milan’s search for a new striker will see the San Siro side make a move for Chelsea forward Fernando Torres.

fanatix tickets – Manchester City vs Chelsea tickets are on sale from £48 for the match on February 24th at the Etihad Stadium.

Nerazzurri boss Andrea Stramaccioni has been linked with a myriad of potential striker signings, including most bizarrely a move to persuade Dutch veteran Ruud Van Nistelrooy to come out of retirement, and now the Serie A side appear to have taken an interest in the 28 year old Blues flop.

Torres has come nowhere near justifying the £50m British transfer record fee the West London side paid Liverpool for the Spanish international.

Torres has now gone ten Premier League games without a goal and his overall return of 27 goals in 109 appearances for Chelsea is one that has left many wondering just how much longer Roman Abramovich will stick by the forward.

A move to Inter Milan may tempt Torres and could give the former Atletico Madrid man a chance to re-ignite his career but any potential move would depend greatly on just how much the Italian giants were willing to offer for the player with Chelsea likely to demand at least half the sum they paid to sign him back in January 2011.
