Arsenal: Could the Gunners really sign Fernando Torres?

Bookmark and Share


The English Press was filled with rumours this week that Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is interesting Arsene Wenger. The Arsenal manager is apparently keen on bringing the Spaniard to the Emirates to partner the soon to-be-announced Gonzalo Higuain up front. 

Torres hasn't enjoyed the best of times at Chelsea. The £50 million pound forward is currently the most expensive player in Premier League history but endured a tough start to life at Stamford Bridge, although he scored 22 goals in 64 games for the Blues last season, although only eight of these were in the league, with only one of these being scored in 2012, against Everton on the last day of the season.

Rafa Benitez was brought into Chelsea partly to get his fellow Spaniard firing on all cylinders. 

If Wenger can get Torres' confidence sky-high, then Arsenal could potentially have a world class striker back in their side. The supply from Cazorla, Walcott and Podolski would give Torres plenty of chances to convert. 

Also on Arsenal's side is Jose Mourinho's rumoured willingness to sell. If that is the case then £12 million could be enough for Wenger to pull Torres across London. 

Calling all Arsenal Fans - Would you take Fernando Torres at Arsenal? Can the Spaniard score the goals to pull you back into the Championship race? Or should you focus on other targets? 

Whatever your views, we'd love to hear from you!
