Chelsea are planning an ambitious bid to sign Atletico Madrid starlet Oliver Torres, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

The 18-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most exciting products to emerge from the youth academy at the Vicente Calderon in years - and has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona.

Indeed, the Spain Under-21 international has been compared to Barcelona icon Xavi, and rumours suggest he has been identified by the Catalan giants as a potential long-term replacement for the veteran midfield maestro.

But Chelsea are determined to secure the youngster's signature, are will even allow playmaker Juan Mata to join Diego Simeone's side in January if it paves the way for Torres to become a blue, according to a report in the People last weekend.

Mata has played a peripheral role at Stamford Bridge this season and reports have linked him with a host of top clubs, including Atleti.
