Inter Milan are trying to land Chelsea striker Fernando Torres - but will target a move for Edin Dzeko if they can't pull off a move for the Spaniard according to the Telegraph.

The Italian club are currently undergoing something of an overhaul having been taken over by Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir, and have already agreed a deal to sign Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United.

Now they are in the market for a new striker and have linked with various strikers including Javier Hernandez and Real Madrid ace Alvaro Morata in recent weeks - reports the club themselves have denied.

However according to the Telegraph it is Chelsea striker Fernando Torres that they are targeting.

Torres joined the Stamford Bridge base club back in 2011 for a £50 million fee, but has never truly settled.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is likely to be looking to sign a big-name forward in the summer, which could pave the way for Torres' exit. 

If that is the case then Inter Milan are said to be at the front of the queue - however his £150,000-per-week wages may prove to be a stumbling block.

If his wages prove to be an insurmountable problem then Inter will turn their attention towards one of Manchester City's strikers, Edin Dzeko.

According to the Telegraph, both Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the 27-year-old.

The Bosnian has also had a mixed time of things since joining Manchester City back in 2011, and has failed to hold down a regular starting spot.

As it stands he faces competition from Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic, with Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini tending to favour the first two.
