Fernando Torres’ agent has denied he has been approached over a potential summer switch to Roma, insisting there are currently ‘no negotiations’ ongoing over the Spaniard’s future.
Torres’ future has been the subject of much debate in recent weeks as the former Liverpool player continues to struggle to reach the heights he achieved on Merseyside.
Torres ended his prolonged goal drought that extended to over 25 hours on the pitch with a brace over Leicester in the FA Cup, however he is still searching for his first Premier League goal since September.
Since making his £50 million switch from Liverpool last year, Torres has found the back of the net just three times, prompting speculation he could be moved on by the Blues over the summer.
However since the departure of former boss Andre Villas-Boas, Torres' performances appear to have picked up culminating in his solid performance in the Blues' Champions League quarter-final tie against Benfica this week, which included an assist for the winning goal.
Last week reports in Italy suggested Roma were interested in taking the Spanish international to Rome over the summer as part of a massive overhaul by the club’s American owners to take them back into the fold at the top of Serie A and into the Champions League.
According to calcioonline.com, former Roma’s general manager has made contact with Chelsea in an attempt to link the 28-year-old with club manager and compatriot Luis Enrique.
However Antonio Sanz, who represents the former Atletico striker, has insisted there has been no talks held between the two parties over a potential transfer.
“We know of the new American project at Roma and the idea of how to play by Luis Enrique,” Sanz told PagineRomaniste.com.
“If Roma want Fernando then they have to talk to Chelsea. The Italian League remains consistently high, but currently there are no ongoing negotiations with Roma.
“Fernando still has another four years on his contract at Chelsea.”
He continued: "With (Andre) Villas-Boas he was not considered, but the arrival of Di Matteo on the bench has seen him rediscover his confidence.
"He played a great match in the Champions League in Lisbon (against Benfica), assisting the winning goal for (Salomon) Kalou.
"We'll evaluate his future in the coming months."
