Costa, 25, is set for a £32m transfer from Atletico Madrid, joining fellow Spaniard Cesc Fabregas in west London following his £30m move from Barcelona last week.

The arrival of Costa will undoubtedly put pressure on Torres to hit the target on a more regular basis following the Atletico man’s 35 strikes last term.

“The level of competition at big clubs should always be very high. People have been saying for some time that Chelsea have signed a striker, and if that’s Diego then it’s very welcome,” he said.

However, Torres took time to express his delight at the club’s capture of Cesc Fabregas, following his recent arrival from Barcelona.

“I wish he could have joined us at Chelsea a couple of years earlier. He is a blessing for strikers; always looking to find that final, key pass. He’s the type of player Chelsea don’t have.”
