Chelsea are desperate to offload Fernando Torres before the close of the transfer window, but are struggling to find a team willing to pay his £175,000-per-week wage packet report the Telegraph.

As things stand Blues boss Jose Mourinho can call upon Didier Drogba and Diego Costa alongside Torres, but the latter could be on his way out of the club despite both parties previously insisting that won't be the case.

The Telegraph say that Chelsea are 'desperate' to offload Torres, who has failed to find the back of the net in pre-season. He has been linked with a return to Atletico Madrid, but it is highly unlikely that they can afford his wages.

Chelsea have been linked with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao - moves which are only likely to happen if Torres is moved on.
