Chelsea to replace Torres with Italian international?

Mattia DestroChelsea fans are sporting desperate looking faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern today.

As we know, the only thing that gets the Blues hot under the collar is talking about their forwards and the Daily Telegraph are happy to do just that.

The Blues are reportedly set to allow Fernando Torres to leave the club for AC Milan and with Diego Costa experiencing injury niggles and indeed Jose Mourinho wary of a season with just Didier Drogba as his only back-up option, something needs to give.

That has led the Blues boss to trail Italian international forward Mattia Destro who is one of Roma’s most prized assets but would be able to depart the Stadio Olimpico for the right price.

Chelsea are going head to head with Manchester City for the Premier League title. With a tough period coming up fixture-wise, not to mention having four different competitions to contend with, Mourinho knows that he requires more strength in depth in attack.

Chelsea fans. Do you think Destro is the player you need? Would you allow Torres to leave without bringing in another forward? Let us know your thoughts below.
