Fernando Torres wanted by Monaco & Atletico Madrid - transfer roundup

Football News

Chelsea have completed most of their transfer business already, and now attentions turns to who they may let go this summer.

Demba Ba has joined Besiktas, and it looks as though Fernando Torres could soon follow him out of the door. The Telegraph say that both Atletico Madrid and Monaco are keen on him - although only the latter can match his £175,000-per-week wages which puts them in the driving seat.

Torres joined Chelsea for £50 million in 2011 but has never truly found his best form, although he did help the club win the Champions League in 2012. If he does indeed follow Ba out of the door then Chelsea would almost certainly look to add further to their forward ranks. 

Recent reports suggest Didier Drogba could arrive as a stop-gap, before they spend big on a new striker next year as they look to even out their spending in order to comply with Financial Fair Play.
