Torres, who is a Roman Abramovich signing has failed to impress since his arrival from Liverpool last January in a whopping £50m move and it is clear the Russian owner is becoming frustrated with the 27 year old he brought on board to help the side under the managerial guidance of Carlo Ancelotti.
Whilst it is believed the signing of Juan Mata may give Torres the required ball needed to find the net on more occasions, Torres has had ample chances without Mata playing and has so far shown that he is no longer the player he once was.
Although the sale of the former Liverpool striker would be an embarrassment to the club it is something that would be considered after such a long and poor run of form.
Whilst Spanish sides Malaga, and his original club Athletico Madrid are only enquiring at this stage they will expect to pay much less than the £50m Chelsea paid last January and would be looking to pay no more than £20m for a striker who scores only once per thirty attempts on goal.
Should Torres not improve by January Chelsea will listen to offers for the out of form hitman.
