Chelsea transfer news: Two targets emerge as Torres nears exit

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea are preparing to move for AS Roma striker Mattia Destro according to the Telegraph.

The Blues are reportedly interested in the 23-year-old as Fernando Torres nears a switch to AC Milan.

Chelsea seem to have been pushed back into the market for another striker following an injury to Diego Costa.

Some reports are suggesting that Torres has already agreed a two-year deal with Milan.

The Spaniard has struggled to feature under Jose Mourinho which has prompted the reported exit.

Torres is reported to have taken a pay cut on his Chelsea contract to secure the move.

Chelsea could also try to revitalise their apparent interest in Ezequiel Lavezzi before the transfer deadline.

Reports suggest that Arsene Wenger is back in for the PSG star, which could prompt Chelsea to make a move of their own.

The Argentine has been linked with a switch to the Blues at various points throughout the summer.
