Chelsea flop Fernando Torres is set to be the subject of a £30million January bid form La Liga, according to the Metro.


Newly rich Malaga are hovering around the Spain international, as there have been reports in recent weeks suggesting the Stamford Bridge club are willing to sell.


Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has publicly defended Torres and insisted they will not be selling him, but he has been reluctant to start the former Liverpool man lately.


Torres moved to Chelsea from Anfield for a whopping £50million in January, but Roman Abramovich is thought to be willing to take a loss.


It was originally suggested that the Oligarch would consider selling the former Atletico Madrid captain for only £20million. The reported offer from Malaga would be a far more favourable sum, and Abramovich may be tempted to cash in on a player who has so far been a flop.


Torres has scored just five goals since his big-money move to west London, and has been ousted from Villas-Boas’ side by a resurgent Didier Drogba.


Drogba is set to leave for the Africa Cup of Nations in the middle of January and it had been assumed that Torres would get an extended run in the side.


However, with Chelsea needing to avoid any slip-ups if they are to challenge for the Barclays Premier League title, the Blues could be tempted to bring someone in who can guarantee goals.
