Chelsea reportedly want to sell Fernando Torres this summer.

According to The Sun, the Blues are willing to take a £30m hit on the striker, who joined them for £50m from Liverpool in 2011.

Torres has enjoyed his best season at Chelsea this year, scoring 22 goals, but only seven have come in the Premier League, the last being against Aston Villa in December.

His overall record for the club is 34 goals in 130 appearances and today's game against Everton could be his last for the Chelsea.

It is thought that Jose Mourinho, who is expected to take over at Stamford Bridge this summer, wants a new look attack consisting of Andre Schurrle and Edison Cavani.

A potential stumbling block for Chelsea could be the fact that Torres doesn't want to leave, and the club face either paying him a portion of his £170,000-a-week wages after he moves on or paying him a lump sum to leave.
