Reported Chelsea and Liverpool target Ferran Torres has transformed his physique whilst in lockdown as the Blues ponder a move.
Football Espana refer to the 20-year-old Valencia winger as “one of La Liga’s most promising talents”.
Torres was also looked upon as a “skinny teenager with magic feet, but over time he’s developing both mentally and physically to become more of a presence on the pitch for 90 minutes”.
The report claims the last 12 months has seen him bulk up massively, gaining four kilos on his lockdown training plan.
Per the source, Chelsea were already interested in the player after being impressed by the winger’s performances in the Champions League and were tracking him until they signed Hakim Ziyech.
However, Frank Lampard may still be interested as he looks to replace Willian and Pedro and the lack of progress on a new deal between Torres and Valencia may well make him an attractive proposition.
Torres’ current contract is set to expire at the end of June 2021, and it had been reported that Valencia had opened talks with their in-demand young player as they look to fend off interest from elsewhere.
However, a story from Spanish news outlet AS say that although the LaLiga side put a new deal on the table a matter of months ago, Torres has decided not to make any decisions on his future at The Mestalla until the end of the season.
El Espanol report that this is “opening a path” to Real Madrid, but Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern Munich have all been mentioned as potential suitors.
