All the latest Chelsea transfer news and rumours including a potential one year deal for Real Madrid player, Fernando Torres latest and more.
Having enjoyed many battles with Chelsea attackers like Didier Drogba during his time spent at Liverpool, full back Alvaro Arbeloa may end up becoming a Blue, according to the latest Chelsea transfer news as the Spaniard - who has fallen behind Dani Carvajal in the Real Madrid pecking order of preferential right backs - could be offered a "one year deal" at Stamford Bridge.
The Express report that Arbeloa, 31, who returned 25 clearances, 22 interceptions and 49 tackles from 14 La Liga starts last term, has "fallen out with Carlo Ancelotti at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu" and would "jump at the chance to have a reunion with Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge."
Arbeloa would likely provide cover at right back, rather than competition to primary choice Branislav Ivanovic, if Mourinho were to purchase the Real Madrid player.
Meanwhile, AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani said of Fernando Torres that he "is certainly an important forward and we will see if we can sign him or another player."
Torres is yet to feature for the Blues this season and the club may jump at the chance to sell one of their costliest market mistakes, however, the only way to perhaps get shot of the maligned striker is by ratifying a temporary switch with the Serie A side, as the Rossoneri are only interested in a season-long loan deal.
One player who spent a year with Chelsea last term, Samuel Eto'o, signed for Everton this week and had a message for his former boss Mourinho.
"The only thing I have to say about Jose is to thank him," Eto'o said, graciously. "It's down to him that I had the opportunity to be accepted and integrated into the Premier League and I want to thank him for that."
The Cameroon hotshot may even face his erstwhile employer this weekend as Everton host Chelsea at Goodison Park on Saturday, August 30 in the late afternoon kick-off.
"I'm not particularly concerned that it's [debut] against my [former] team. The important thing is to integrate into my new team-mates' way of playing and get ready for that match."
And finally, this data study proves that regardless of Manchester United's British club record purchase of Angel di Maria for £59.7 million, it is still Eden Hazard who is most efficient when it comes to attacking with the football.
