Chelsea are reportedly looking to offload Fernando Torres this summer.

Chelsea are reportedly looking for a potential suitor to take Fernando Torres off their hands.

The Spanish striker moved to Stamford Bridge for a British-record £50m in January 2011, but has largely struggled during his three years at Stamford Bridge.

According to The Mirror, manager Jose Mourinho, who aimed a veiled criticism at Torres in the wake of their Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening, is actively trying to offload his player.

Inter Milan are reportedly interested, although Torres's £9m annual salary could be a stumbling block.

Meanwhile, former assistant manager Ray Wilkins has claimed that the former Liverpool striker has no future at Stamford Bridge.
