Chelsea are looking to sell Fernando Torres after the arrival of Samuel Eto'o from Anzhi Makhachkala, according to the Mirror.

Spanish striker Torres could be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, after signing for the club in a British record of £50m in 2011.

With Eto'o signing a one-year deal with the Blues, the 29-year-old is unlikely to feature heavily in Jose Mourinho's plans. Spanish clubs have already showed interest in the striker, who has fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of new signings.

Torres will need to find first team-football this season in order to secure a place in the Spanish national team for the upcoming 2014 World Cup, the Mirror say Chelsea will listen to offers for his services.

After netting only 15 goals in 84 league appearances for the Blues, the Spaniard has had a disappointing spell at Chelsea. However, he has lifted the European Cup, FA Cup and the Europa League trophy during his time in west London.

After failing to sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United, Mourinho turned to Eto'o - the two had a successful partnership in Italy when Mourinho managed Internazionale.

Together they lifted a Treble of the Italian title and cup, and the Champions League.

Mourinho has said Eto'o is a player he truly admires and he would be honoured to work with him in the future. The future is here and the two have been re-united with hope of further success.
