Inter Milan Linked With Move For Struggling Chelsea Striker

World Cup forward wanted by Inter’s influential former owner.

Inter Milan could move for Chelsea striker Fernando Torres this summer, according to talkSPORT.

The radio station claim that Italian club’s former owner, Massimo Moratti, is a long-term admirer of the ex Liverpool frontman and that he could convince the Serie A giants to bid for the player.

Moratti sold Inter to Erick Thohir last season, but he was given the ceremonial role of honourary president and it is thought that he still holds quite a lot of influence at the San Siro.

Inter scored 62 league goals last season, with Rodrigo Palacio the only player to reach double figures.

Torres has scored just 20 goals in 110 top-flight games for Chelsea, but the 30-year-old’s record for his previous employers is highly impressive.

He netted 65 times in 102 league games for Liverpool, after bagging 84 in 214 for Atletico Madrid.

Torres has scored 37 goals in 107 senior international appearances for Spain.

He will feature at the World Cup, after being selected in Vicente del Bosque’s 23-man squad ahead of Manchester City’s Alvaro Negredo.

Torres is unlikely to start in tonight’s Group B opener against the Netherlands at Arena Fonte Nova, with Diego Costa expected to lead the line.
