Fernando Torres

We profile a team made up of players currently plying their trade for AC Milan, Southampton, Middlesbrough, Vitesse Arnhem and many more...

Chelsea have 26 players currently out on loan across the country and continent - which is a bigger squad than many teams in the Premier League can wish for.

So where would a team made up entirely of Chelsea loanees finish in the Premier League. Judging by this match-day squad, they would probably do just fine.

GK: Matej Delac

This 22-year-old stopper arrived at the club in 2010, shortly after being named in the Croatia senior squad aged 17, the youngest ever to receive the call.

Has only just received work permit to play in England and has had six previous loan spells in Portugal, Holland, Bosnia and the Czech Republic.

Impressed in pre-season and will spend 2014-15 with French Ligue 2 outfit Arles-Avignon.

DC: Tomas Kalas

Shone last season when he kept Luis Suarez quiet at Anfield in that infamous Jose Mourinho masterclass.

Arrival of Kurt Zouma left him unwanted so the Czech international has joined 1.FC Koln in the Bundesliga for the season.

DC: Kenneth Omeruo

A Nigerian international who has previously shone in the Dutch Eredivisie with ADO Den Haag. 

Won the African Nations with the Super Eagles and has 17 caps for his country.

Currently at Middlesbrough, this 20-year-old has a definite future in the game ... will it be with Chelsea?

DR: Wallace

Signed amid big competition last year, he spent the season with Inter Milan in 2013-14. Now at farm club Vitesse Arnhem he is considered as one of Brazil's finest young talents.

DL: Ryan Bertrand

No stranger to loan moves Bertrand has upped sticks on a temporary basis seven times since joining Chelsea in 2005.

An England international and Champions League finalist he is shining as Luke Shaw's replacement at Southampton.

MC: Marco van Ginkel

Signed last term and would have been a first team regular had he not suffered a terrible knee injury.

Jose Mourinho wants the Dutch international to get regular action, so he has been loaned to AC Milan.

MC: Mario Pasalic

Signed this summer, in which he was also named in the provisional Croatia squad for the World Cup.

Loaned out to Elche in La Liga after rejecting Lazio in Italy.

MC: Thorgan Hazard

The younger brother of Eden has swept Belgian domestic football aside for the past two seasons with Zulte-Waregem. He was named the best player in the league two seasons in a row and is now chancing his arm in Germany with Borussia Monchengladbach.

FW: Christian Atsu

Was signed and loaned out on the same day in 2013, spending last term with Vitesse Arnhem.

After impressing for Ghana at the World Cup he was snapped up by Everton.

FW: Victor Moses

Currently in great form at Stoke City after a less than fruitful spell with Liverpool last term.

His career at Chelsea seems over, but he will surely remain a Premier League fixture for years to come.

FW: Fernando Torres

The £50 million man scored his first goal of a two-year loan spell at AC Milan last night, after he saw himself become third-choice striker at Stamford Bridge.

SUB: Jamal Blackman

Currently at Middlesbrough, made his debut against Liverpool in the League Cup last night.

SUB: Nathaniel Chalobah

Joined Burnley this summer after a successful stint with Watford, but not so happy time with Nottingham Forest.

SUB: Oriol Romeu

The Rafa Benitez favourite is in the Bundesliga with VfB Stuttgart after overcoming knee troubles.

SUB: Bertrand Traore

Currently in his second season at Vitesse after a long ordeal getting him signed for The Blues.

SUB: Josh McEachran

Undoubtedly talented but alarmingly lightweight, he is hoping a stint abroad will suit him more at Vitesse.

SUB: Lucas Piazon

The Brazilian has been dubbed the 'next Kaka' in some quarters. Has joined Eintracht Frankfurt on loan.

SUB: Patrick Bamford

Impressed at Derby County last season and scored for Middlesbrough against Liverpool last night.
