Valencia want Fernando Torres and Javier Hernandez

Published Add your comment

Spanish outfit Valencia are eyeing a double swoop for Chelsea forward Fernando Torres and Manchester United's Javier Hernandez.

New Valencia owner Peter Lim is reportedly looking to inject some serious cash into the club in order to restore them to their former glory.

According to the Mirror, the two players the billionaire is targeting are Torres and Hernandez - both of whom had their troubles at Chelsea and Manchester United respectively.

Torres has never truly found his best form for Chelsea since his £50 million switch in 2011, while Hernandez has struggled for game time at Old Trafford following the arrival of Robin van Persie and the emergence of Danny Welbeck.

Both players are likely to be on the move in the summer window - although Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has previously insisted Torres won't be sold - and Valencia are hoping to work out a cut-price deal.

Torres, who has been linked heavily with Inter Milan, could cost as little as £13 million, while Manchester United are ready to cash in on Hernandez according to the Mirror, although no fee is mentioned.

Tottenham have previously been linked with a move for Hernandez, but Valencia are said to be confident of landing at least one of their two striker targets.
