It is believed that Chelsea will make a £34m move for Bayern Munich’s German star Mario Gomez in January.
Should Torres’ woes continue over the next couple of months it is expected that Blues boss André Villas-Boas will make his move for the highly-rated striker.
Gomez, has only been at Bayern since 2009, when he moved for the huge fee of £26m from Stuttgart. Like his club, his personal season has started very well – He has scored eight goals in five games.
Whilst Torres did score in last weekend’s loss to Manchester United he did miss an open-goal. In his last performance whilst there was that infamous miss, there were signs of him showing his ‘previous’ self, which has given Blues’ fans hope.
