Chelsea want Atletico Madrid to take Tor­res in Diego Costa deal

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Chelsea are hop­ing to in­clude Fer­nando Tor­res in their bid for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

The Daily Ex­press said Diego Costa is Blues boss Jose Mour­inho’s top tar­get to spear­head a strike force that will in­clude Romelu Lukaku when the Bel­gian re­turns from his loan spell at Ever­ton.

As a re­sult, Chelsea’s open­ing of­fer is likely to be £30m plus Tor­res, who moved to Eng­land from Atletico seven years ago and re­mains a big hero there.

Tor­res, whose con­fi­dence has dipped dra­mat­i­cally at Chelsea this sea­son, would love to go ‘home’ to res­ur­rect his ca­reer at both club and in­ter­na­tional level.
