The world knows what sort of ability Fernando Torres holds somewhere in that locker of his, and after enjoying his best season in London since joining in 2011, could he fight for the golden boot this next season?
Torres scored 22 goals in all competitions for Chelsea last season, something he had failed to achieve for the last three years in the Premier League. So, could he finally be finding his feet in London?
The Spaniard has consistently mis-fired since his £50m transfer from Liverpool, but following a much better goalscoring season last term, this could benefit Torres' confidence for the upcoming season.
His performances and goals in the Confederations Cup saw him win the Golden Boot award with five goals.
Could we see the 2013/14 season become Fernando's year? With the new additions to the Chelsea squad, we will definitely see some quality play throughout the campaign from the Blues - this will only offer to benefit Torres in front of goal.
With the quality of the likes of Robin van Persie, Luis Suarez, Sergio Aguero, Gareth Bale and Christian Benteke to name a few, Torres will have his work cut out if he wants to end the league as the top scorer, not to mention Manchester United's Wayne Rooney, Manchester City new-boys Alvaro Negredo & Stevan Jovetic, along with the potential Spurs signing of Roberto Soldado.
Could Torres hit 25-30 goals domestically for Chelsea next season?
Or will he have another dismal and frustrating season at Stamford Bridge?
In my opinion, if Torres can find the form he produced at Liverpool, which was a deadly, consistent and confident finisher, he will sure be up their come the end of the season challenging for the Golden Boot award.
