Inter Milan have denied that they are holding talks with Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez, according to the Express.
The Serie A side had been linked with a move for both Torres and Javier Hernandez of Manchester United, though their president Erick Thohir has insisted that no talks have been held with either striker.
Torres has scored nine goals in twenty-eight club appearances this season, and forty-three in one hundred and fifty-nine since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in January 2011.
Meanwhile, the Spain international is currently facing a spell on the side-lines with a muscular problem, the Daily Star understands.
The 29 year old missed Saturday afternoon’s win over Tottenham Hotspur after suffering an injury in the warm-up, and his manager has confirmed that he will miss at least “a couple of weeks”.
Torres’ absence may give Demba Ba an opportunity to add to the two goals he netted at the weekend.
The former Newcastle United and West Ham United man, who trebled his league tally for the season against Tim Sherwood’s men, has started just two top flight games so far this term but is determined to keep working hard as the Blues continue to challenge on two fronts.
