Torres shakes off ankle injury, heading for AC Milan debut on Saturday

AC Milan new boy Fernando Torres is back in training after an ankle injury and could make his debut against Juventus this weekend.

AC Milan face a crunch test against reigning champions Juventus at San Siro on Saturday and Pippo Inzaghi may call on Fernando Torres.

The Italian side swooped to grab Torres on a two-year loan from Chelsea during the summer transfer window and the arrival has been greeted with enthusiasm by the Milan faithful.

Milan haven't exactly struggled to find the net without Torres this season and scored eight goals in two games after a dramatic 5-4 triumph over Parma.

But Torres will be an added weapon and he could feature against Juventus, maybe even starting the game.

Fellow striker Stephan El Shaarawy was also ruled out against Parma with injury but the talented Italian has also returned to training and is available for selection.

Inzaghi will have an abundance of attacking options against a Juventus side who are yet to concede a goal in Serie A this season, having beaten Chievo 1-0 and Udinese 2-0.

Saturday's encounter will also be something of a grudge match for Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who was sacked by Milan halfway through last season.
