With a host of top class players in the Blues squad, we speculate which player may profit most from the Barca midfielder's possible arrival.
Even though the West London club have won plenty of trophies in his time there, it hasn't stopped the Spaniard from becoming a figure of ridicule with opposing fans given his hugely disappointing return of 45 goals across his 4 years at Stamford Bridge. It has led Jose Mourinho to the cusp of signing Torres' Spanish rival Diego Costa.
Despite his Chelsea difficulties Torres has managed to win the golden boot at both Euro 2012 and last summer's Confederations Cup, something Spain manager almost certainly considered when he called up Torres for this year's World Cup.
Unsurprisingly, Torres urged Abramovic to make a move for the Barcelona star when he spoke to Movistar recently.
"He is a kind of player that Chelsea don't have at the moment," said Torres.
"Great players are always great signings. We know him well, he was one of the best players in the Premier League while playing for Arsenal and is a player who brings a lot to the team.
"He is a player who brings ball control and goals. If he feels important, if he feels like a leader he proved at Arsenal that can lead a squad."
For Torres to have any success at Chelsea, the more quality Spanish playmakers the club sign the better, especially after Mourinho let Juan Mata leave the club in January.
If Torres is still at the club after the summer, and that is somewhat of a big if, playing off the clever passing of Fabregas, who is someone he has featured with at international level for many years, may finally see the former Liverpool man fulfil a little more of his potential.
