AC Milan reportedly identify Fernando Torres as a replacement for Mario Balotelli, who looks ready to sign for Liverpool.

AC Milan are considering a move for Chelsea's Fernando Torres, reports suggest.

The Spanish striker was dropped from Chelsea's squad for Saturday's home game against Leicester City and is seen as a replacement for Liverpool-bound Mario Balotelli, according to ESPN.

New Milan manager Filippo Inzaghi was told to free up some cash with sales if he wanted to bring in players more suited to his desired style of play.

Torres could represent a cut-price replacement, although his high wages could be a significant stumbling block for the Italian club.
