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.
