Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has insisted that he remains committed to Chelsea despite their continued pursuit of Wayne Rooney.

Jose Mourinho has been very open about his desire to sign the Manchester United forward, subsequently linking Fernando Torres with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Further doubt was placed over Torres' position in the squad after Mourinho sign Samuel Eto'o on a one-year deal from Anzhi Makhachkala.

Reports have suggested that Chelsea are ready to listen to offers for the Spaniard and are willing to sell him for significantly less than the £50m they paid Liverpool for him in 2011.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with a move for the 29-year-old, but have so far yet to contact Chelsea about a potential transfers.

However, Torres has hinted that he is willing to stay with Chelsea, saying that working with Mourinho is a main reason why.

He told the Evening Standard: “We have been working for only a short time together.

“People respect him very much and you trust him that he works without fail. I have never felt this way before with any coach.”

Torres has also claimed that the prospect of working with Rooney is not daunting, but exciting.

“Chelsea always wants the best players and Rooney is one of them," he said. "I admire him and it would be great to play with him."
