Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has rejected speculation that the Blues are prepared to sell Fernando Torres.

Torres has scored only five times in 35 appearances for Chelsea since his record-breaking move from Liverpool, and is far from a guaranteed starter at Stamford Bridge.

Reports on Wednesday claimed Chelsea were ready to listen to offers of around £20 million for the 27-year-old in January, despite having paid over double that amount to sign him less than a year ago.

But Villas-Boas insist Torres is not for sale, either next month or during the summer transfer window.

"Fernando Torres is not for sale at any price, now or in the summer," said the Blues boss.

Torres has featured 11 times for Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League this season, including five times from the bench.

He was an unused substitue again on Monday night as the Blues ended Manchester City's unbeaten run in the league with a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

It would, however, appear that his futre remains at Chelsea, despite recent media reports to the contrary.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have been linked with January bids for Gonzalo Higuain and Edinson Cavani as Villas-Boas reportedly looks to further reinforce his goalscoring department.
