Juventus make Torres contact

Published Add your comment

Juventus have reportedly made contact with aides of Fernando Torres in the hope of convincing the Chelsea striker to move to Turin this summer.

Torres has endured a difficult time in west London since his £50 million move from Liverpool in January of last year, and has frequently been linked with a move away from the club.

Juve, meanwhile, are reported to be in the market for a striker when the transfer window reopens, and Torres appears to have been identified as a target.

According to Goal.com, Bianconeri sporting director Fabio Paratici has already contacted Torres' former agent Margarita Garay - who remains close to the player - to discuss a possible transfer.

Juve will, of course, have to register any formal interest with Chelsea, and reports in January had suggested that Roman Abramovich was willing to sell the 28-year-old Spaniard.

However, the Chelsea owner may reconsider if Torres can now hit a sustained run of form, having finally ended a barren spell in front of goal by scoring twice against Leicester on Sunday.
