Chelsea striker Fernando Torres could finally be on his way out of Stamford Bridge, with Serie A side AC Milan set to sign him on a two-year deal, according to Metro.
The Spanish international has had a torrid time in west London since arriving from Liverpool in a £50 million deal, which was the British record transfer fee at the time, and despite three strikers already leaving the club this summer, Torres could become the fourth.
Last season Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was very opinionated about where his squad went wrong in the title-race, and he was adamant that it was down to the lack of a killer striker up front.
Last season's strikers
The Blues relied on Samuel Eto'o, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres up front for last season, and if Torres does complete his move to the San Siro, all three of those strikers will have left Stamford Bridge. Eto'o has completed a move to Everton, whilst Ba has joined Turkish side Besiktas.
Not only have the duo left Chelsea, but Romelu Lukaku has also left on a permanent deal as he made his loan move to Everton a permanent one in a £28 million deal.
In order to replace the outgoing strikers Mourinho signed Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid and also resigned club legend, Didier Drogba, however, if they do sell Torres to Milan, they will be left with just two strikers at the club.
According to reports in Italy, Milan have had a £10 million offer accepted, which is a massive loss for Roman Abramovich and Chelsea, and also a two-year deal has been put on the table for the 30-year-old.
Going along with those reports, Torres' agent Antonio Sanz, has confirmed that positive talks are ongoing between all parties.
"The meeting has been positive. Torres at Milan is a possibility," said Sanz.
"We will take time to reflect before giving an answer. Milan are a great side."
The Italian side are working hard on finding a suitable replacement for Mario Balotelli, who left the club to join Liverpool last week.
