Chelsea want to reunite Fernando Torres with his former Athletico Madrid striker partner Sergio Aguero in the Blues attack next season, report talkSPORT.
The Argentine starlet is on the brink of leaving the Vicente Calderon after being frustrated in his team's bid to qualify for the Champions League and make a genuine challenge for the La Liga title.
The Blues have long been admirers of the 22-year-old and with Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka entering the twilight of their careers, manager Carlo Ancelotti is preparing to bring some fresh blood to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Aguero had been linked with a move to Chelsea's London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window, but now the three-time Premier League champions are front runners for the forward with the prospect of the Argentine linking up with former team-mate Torres.
The Spaniard, who joined Chelsea from Liverpool for £50 million in the January transfer window, spent his final season at Athletico alongside Aguero.
Ancelotti hopes that the signing of Aguero can kick-start Torres' career at Chelsea, which has yet to get off the ground since his big money move from Merseyside.
