Chelsea Transfer News: Fernando Torres In Swap Deal for Napoli Star

Fernando Torres may have ended the season as Chelsea’s top scorer, but his future still remains in doubt. Torres may have scored 20+ goals last season with Chelsea, but he still needed more than 60 games in order to achieve this record. As a result, he does not seem to be in the plans of future manager José Mourinho, whose return for a second spell is expected to be confirmed the next few weeks. According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are looking at a potential swap deal with Napoli involving Fernando Torres and Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguay star is a highly rated striker, who has been linked with almost every big club across Europe. Recently, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis stated that he would value Cavani in excess of £50 million. Chelsea are willing to match this figure by offering Fernando Torres as part of the deal. They are also prepared to pay £30 million in cash in addition to Torres as well. The 26-year-old finished as the top scorer in the Italian Serie A last season. He almost helped Napoli win the title ahead of Juventus this season.

After the departure of Walter Mazzarri, Cavani is soon expected to follow suit. Chelsea appear to have failed in their attempts to secure the signature of Radamel Falcao, who is close a move to Monaco. Determined to bring in a marquee signing in the summer, Chelsea are prepared to take a huge hit on Torres. The West London outfit paid a British transfer record fee of £50 million to Liverpool a few years ago.

Even though his current season with the club has been a major improvement, Chelsea fans are yet to see the best in him. Chelsea are expected to keep Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku at the club next season.
