According to the Turkish newspaper Takvim, Galatasaray are keen on signing former Chelsea player Fernando Torres.

The paper claims, that Giant’s President Dursun Ozbek is unhappy with Galatasaray’s summer transfers and would like to add some valuable players to his team on winter.

Torres who is currently on a season-long loan with Atletico Madrid from AC Milan brought the attention of the Turkish giants. According to the Turkish sources, Galatasaray will make a bid for the player in January when his contract with Rossoneri expires.

Torres joined Chelsea in 2011 from Liverpool for an undisclosed fee reported to be £50 million, which that time set a new record for a British transfer and made him the sixth most expensive footballer in Premier League history. He spent four seasons at Stamford Bridge, where he made 110 appearances and scored 20 goals.

Benitez’ Chelsea tenure was sandwiched between the managerial spells of two Chelsea legends – Roberto di Matteo, who won the Champions League, and Jose Mourinho, the club’s greatest manager and current occupant of the job.

Reina, who Benitez managed at Liverpool and then took to Naples in 2013, is adamant the Spaniard wants to come back to England, with Manchester City and Newcastle apparently put on high alert by the claim made to talkSport.

“His idea is to be with his family and his family are in Liverpool right now and very happy so, if he gets the chance [to return to the Premier League], why not?

“He is happy at Napoli right now but family always comes first and it is a decision they have to make.

“As far as I know, he is happy in Napoli but is looking forward to coming back to England.”
