Chelsea Star Urges Blues To Sign Former Arsenal Captain Cesc Fabregas

Torres thinks the Barca midfielder would be the perfect fit.

FC Barcelona and former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas appears to be on the move this summer and Fernando Torres has urged Chelsea to sign his national teammate.

Fabregas is set to leave the Nou Camp after failing to truly establish a regular place in the starting XI following a £35m transfer from the Gunners in 2011.

The Spain international has grown disillusioned back in Catalonia and was even booed by his own fans last season, leading Barca to agree to let the 27-year-old leave the club as long as their £30m valuation is met.

The North Londoners have already rejected the chance to re-sign Fabregas, but with the Blues strongly linked Torres has sent out a plea to his club to bring in his fellow Spaniard.

“Big players are always good signings. We know Cesc, he knows the division and was always among the top players when he was at Arsenal,” the striker was quoted by Goal.

“He likes to play good football and will offer ball control, cutting edge, goals.

“If he’s made to feel important, like a leader – like when he was at Arsenal – he can drive the team on and he’s a type of player Chelsea don’t have right now.”

Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for a new central midfielder after veteran Frank Lampard announced he will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer when his current contract expires.

It means that there could be an opening for Fabregas, although having previously fallen out with Mourinho some relationships will need mending first.
