The Italian outfit sent sporting director Piero Ausilio to west London on Tuesday night to watch Torres in action first hand in the second leg of the Blues’ Uefa Champions League round-of-16 clash with Galatasaray at Stamford Bridge.
And despite the Spain international only beginning the tie on the substitutes’ bench, Inter are still determined to try and push ahead with a deal for the 29-year-old this summer, with the club’s new Indonesian owner Erick Thohir keen to rebuild the first-team squad at San Siro for next season.
And with Inter head coach Walter Mazzarri understood to be most interested in strengthening up front, Torres is believed to be the club’s main transfer priority for next season, especially as it is thought likely that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will offload the Spaniard this summer as he himself looks to bring in more firepower to the capital.
